You’re headed to the next big conference or event. They’ll likely provide a badge with your name on it, but what if you could have something better?
That’s where PyBadger and PyBadge (or PyGamer) come in! Use CircuitPython to easily create an interactive conference or event badge. You can display a “Hello My Name Is”-style badge that you can quickly add your name to, or customise it entirely. You can generate and display a custom QR code to direct people to your website. You can also display a “business card” with an image, such as your face or company logo, and a string of text, such as your email address.
CircuitPython’s own Blinka is headed to the next Circuit Playground conference and wants to have the coolest badge there. This guide will walk you through Blinka creating an interactive conference badge. Follow along and customise it to fit your needs!
PyBadger also gives you access to the other features on the board, such as the buttons, NeoPixels, light sensor, and accelerometer. You can easily add all kinds of features to your badge if you choose to.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
