1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Can not see ports on: May 16, 2013, 05:14:28 pm
I have a Macbook pro, running osx 10.8.3. I tried to connect a Lilypad MP3 board via FTDI usb cord. Could not get a port other than the modem or pda choices. Tried powering board on and off, unplugging and replugging it in to get the ports recognized.

What do I do?

How does one connect the Lilypad to a shield that the Uno would use. I.E. I would like to sew some EL Wire into a costume and use the lilypad to  program the wire to work a certain way. I can get an El Escudo shield to go on an uno - but it has pins. how does the Lilypad interact with this? Can it be used at all on a wearble?

I watched the Living Wall from MIT with Dr. Leah on it. I love how the motors and lights interacted with conductive paint. I'd like to add cool things like motors to drive wings to costumes, but how do I do that? There are tons of tutorials regrading Lilypad and lights, but surely more can be done with this powerful tool.

Is there help out there I can go to? Videos? Instructables? other Forums?

So is there a cheap version out there? Like less than $100?

I just watched some videos about the print dress that was showcased at the 2012 CES show. It projected tweets onto a paper skirt. Is there a small, Arduino compatible projector out there? I saw one being used on the sixth sense TED. Video ( not Arduino, I think). I'd love to use on in an up,coming costume project. 

I have several other basic questions about mechanical devices, too.
