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. This clever item comes from the same minds that created the networked CapNet propeller beanies a few years back, but with a twist. 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.
