Juicy LED Badge #WearableWednesday


Here’s a cute badge to wear to your next con, designed by Hirofumi Inomata of Tokyo. It combines a colorful 3D printed frame ala Cube 2, with some interesting parts.  Check out the Adafruit Mini 8×8 LED Matrices with I2C Backpacks, as well as the GR-KURUMI microcontroller. Apparently it’s compatible to an Arduino Pro Mini, but it has some other features that make it useful for small projects. Check out its pink color and cute girl motif — very Japanese.


Hirofumi has also been making wands and cute ear headbands all sporting a variety of LEDs.  LED matrices can be a maker’s dream since you can turn them into blinking eyes, text, or cool game inspired designs. Check out our tutorial to make our LED Matrix Pendant. Remind you of something? You know you want one.
