An unofficial 36c3 badge project with #Feather and #CircuitPython #BadgeLife #36c3 @thomasflummer

Unofficial 36c3 badge

Thomas Flummer posts on Twitter about an unofficial 36c3 badge project:

I have used an Adafruit Feather M4 Express with CircuitPython using the built-in LiPo charging in the Feather for a super simple wearable solution. Assembly tips at #badgelife #36c3

Over on the project web site:

This badge is an experiment into simplistic badges, heavily inspired by the first Superconference badge with just a little blinky-blinky added.

As I see it, this type of badges make it very open what and how to hack it, and I have seen great hacks, when hardware people go at it with parts from the scrap bin and put stuff together in a short period of time.

I’m hoping that some people will take on the challenge and make the LEDs on this badge light up with a type of controller that no one else has used and share some photos and maybe the experience with the rest of us.

(The badge) is using an Adafruit Feather M4 Express running Circuit Python. This is just an example and the badge comes without a controller, only the PCB, 8x WS2812B, 8x 100nF caps and a lanyard is included.
