PyBadger makes it easy to create interactive badges for conferences and events! You can easily display bitmap images and auto generate QR codes. Use adafruit’s circuit python to customize your badge with your name and contact info. You can easily change the size of the titles and even add custom fonts.
Adafruit’s Circuit Python makes programming hardware quick and easy with awesome support and a growing community. When you’re ready to show it off, you can 3D print our case and clip your favorite lanyard. Program and upload code over USB on any computer. Use the built-in bootloader to upgrade to the latest version of Circuit Python.
Follow along with the learn guide to setup your PyBadge with the latest CircuitPython and libraries. Goto circuit python.org to see all the compatible hardware. You can browse the downloads page and get the UF2 for PyBadge. Just drag and drop it onto the USB drive.
This gives you a serial console for debugging code right on the display! It’s amazing. You can grab the library dependencies from the CircuitPython Library Bundle. Edit and save your code directly onto the device and see the display update in real time.
The code is easy on the eyes and simplified so it’s great for beginners and anyone looking to get started. Add your own bitmap images to create a stylized business card that’ll really get their attention. Auto generate your own QR codes so folks can quickly scan your website or any URL. For more details and info, be sure to check out the learn guide.
