|making a no-slip
coaster for your LilyPad
Make a soft "coaster" backing for your LilyPad so that alligator clips won't slip and slide when they're clipped on. Alligator clips are great for prototyping designs. Trust me, it's worth it to do this if you're going to be using clips!
| 1. Get your supplies
2. Trace the outline of the LilyPad on your foam or other material.
The alligator clips should now have a nice sturdy grip on the LilyPad, with good electrical contact and no slipping.
If you got sensors and actuators to play with, cut coasters for them too. This will allow you to easily use alligator clips to prototype designs.
