BadgerHack Badge

March 11, 2016

These badges were created as an interactive, experiential marketing campaign for SparkFun. Attendees to events would solder on headers and the battery pack. When turned on, the LED array would scroll through a series of text and animations. Nick and I devised a way for users to customize their badges at the event without needing to know how to program in Arduino:

The badges were well received at events and garnered some good discussion on Twitter with the tag #BadgerHack. A full tutorial on how to build and modify them can be found on SparkFun’s site.
