TiLDA MKe is Not Your Normal Conference Badge!

Tumblr inline n9znh3W5tC1rpuop0

The TiLDA MKe will be the official conference badge for the Electromagnetic Field Conference held at the end of August in Bletchley, UK.

TiLDA MKe is all about the talk and workshop schedule. If everything goes to plan you’ll be able to browse the latest schedule on the badge, automatically updated by a network of radio base stations across the site. Paper schedules ain’t got nothing on us.

Every badge can be registered online so it will automatically alert you about upcoming talks, events or workshops you’re interested in. This time you won’t miss that session on miniature submarines piloted by trained bees. We promise.

The badge will also have a few other practical applications, like a handy torch-mode (with dedicated button) for locating your tent in the dark, a rain alarm, and as many fun applications as we can write in the remaining weeks. We might even port some classic games for you to play on your way home.

Every attendee will receive a TiLDA upon arrival. You can take it home afterwards and use it to experiment with programming. Or build a 3D printer. Or a spaceship.

What it is

At its heart the badge is an Arduino Due compatible 32bit ARM Cortex M3. A rechargeable battery will keep it running for days, and you can charge it over USB when the juice runs out. We added a 128×64 pixel LCD screen, two RGB LEDs, a radio transceiver, joystick, accelerometer, gyroscope, speaker, infrared, and all sorts of other fun parts. It’s compatible with Arduino shields and has dedicated connectors for electronic textiles.

Like every great IT project, this one is running fashionably late, so keep an eye on the website to see what we manage to get done! If you’d like to help out, get in touch.
