What if I hacked my Conference badge…?

“Wouldn’t it be great to have a ‘take home’ artifact”

Learning2 Europe Milan 2016- flashback!

Feedback from last year’s successful Pre-Con suggested:
“Wouldn’t it be great to have a ‘take home’ artifact”

With this in mind, this year the core of the PreCon free make will be a badge hack!

What if your badge had blinking leds?

Catch someone’s attention- send a message…

Try creating a simple folding switch to control your circuit.

We’ll be taking inspiration from Jie Qi who blends paper craft and personal expression with programming and electronics. I was fortunate to meet Jie at MozFest 2016 where we created paper circuits with led stickers. Jie’s led stickers and incredibly thin, adhesive, copper tape, combined with well thought out templates make this badge hack a sure way to catch someones eye or market your Twitter handle at a conference.
