The open source “YDY” pin @pcbassembly @SunstoneCircuit

YDY pin lit up 800

Screaming Circuits / Sunstone Circuits have teamed up to make the “You Do You” electronic lapel pin.

The the Screaming Circuits / Sunstone Circuits “You Do You” electronic lapel pin is a 1.3″ x 1.6″ lapel pin powered by a single CR2032 coin cell (yes, batteries are included in the gift pack at the OSHWA 10th anniversary summit). It’s driven by a Microchip PIC18F46K22 microcontroller, an NXP MMA8452 MEMS accelerometer, many 0402 LEDs and a bunch of 0201 passives on a 5 mil trace and space PC board from Sunstone Circuits.

It’s perfect for the shy person wishing to avoid eye contact. Simply clip it to your lapel. When you go to shake someone’s hand, the MMA8452 will register the movement, causing the YDY LEDs to light up and distract the handshakeee, diverting their gaze from your eyes to your lapel. Extra shy people may clip it to their shoelaces for even greater gaze avertment.

See the post for additional details.

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, 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.
