#Teardown of the @ESC_Conf ‘Hello There!’ Badge

Embedded Systems Conference is next week in Boston; Richard Quinnell from EDN got ahold of a limited mesh-networked badge and tore it down.

Badge 2 -  front back

In the lead up to this year’s Embedded Systems Conference, Boston, there is a lot of buzz about the limited-edition, mesh-networked attendee badge that will be available to a lucky hundred or so attendees.

The badge was made to be hacked and its full design is available as open-source so those unable to get their hands on an original can replicate one. At EDN we’ve dug into the design to give you insights into the design thinking behind the ESC 2016 Collectable Badge as well as a head start on building or modifying your own.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
