For TinyLily, I would like to get a capacitive sensor board. I would like to experiment with embedding some capacitive sensing elements (made of conductive fabric or thread) for sensing touch and maybe even muscle movement. For example, this IC is cheap and with good features: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9604 It has also led controllers so it could be used for a touchpad with led lights.
