In an effort to make the Funky v2 even easier to use, I decided to make it appear as a standard LilyPad Arduino USB by using the same USB VID/PID pair. This will enable using it with Arduino IDE without needing to modify it, all this is possible because the Funky v2 and Lilypad Arduino USB share the same important characteristics – an ATMega32U4 processor running at 8Mhz. So basically using Funky v2 on a computer means plugging it in the USB port, installing the drivers that are located in the Arduno/drivers folder and selecting ‘Lilypad Arduino USB’ as board. Easy-peasy.
