The latest posts on our resources for getting started are in the Getting-Started category.
To get started with Amici, you only need to download and unzip Amici on your computer. Then launch the Amici.exe (or Amici.app on Mac). If you haven’t worked with Arduino yet, you need to install the drivers in order to upload your programs to the Arduino board (as explained on arduino.cc).
You find further information on how to create a program with Amici and how to upload it in the EduWear-Kit manual.
You can buy Arduino boards at several vendors (see vendor list). We have also composed an “EduWear Kit” which contains everything you need to make your own smart textiles project. It’s available from the Watterott Online Shop.
