Be my Valentine: Bearsy, your little Teddy bear with Arduino LilypadFebruary 5, 2012
[Ricco] made this awesome project as his christmas present to his girlfriend. What it does is that every time the bear is hugged, the heart fades in, pauses, and then fades back out. I got the bear's skin from build-a-bear. The brain of the bear is a LilyPad Arduino Board
. It is powered by a 1000mah 3.7v LiPo battery that is rechargable via a usb cable that is stored inside the bear. The bear senses the hug with a 4.5" flex sensor that is sewn into the back of the bear. For the heart, I made a paper template and sewed the LEDs
in place on it. I then just sewed the LEDs into the bear with a red felt heart covering them.
