TiLDA MKe

At Electromagnetic Field 2014, the conference badge was no ordinary piece of laminated paper attached to a lanyard, it was instead a TiLDA MKe.

From the description on the EMFCamp website: Announcing TiLDA MKe: "At its heart the badge is an Arduino Due compatible 32bit ARM Cortex M3. A rechargeable battery will keep it running for days, and you can charge it over USB when the juice runs out. We added a 128x64 pixel LCD screen, two RGB LEDs, a radio transceiver, joystick, accelerometer, gyroscope, speaker, infrared, and all sorts of other fun parts."

Unfortunately, the badge wasn't quite finished when EMFCamp started and some of it didn't quite work, but we were all given badges that we could at least play Tetris on. :)

I am attending BarCamp London X at the weekend, and they said to bring your own conference badge, and as the TiLDA MKe is definitely the most advanced conference badge I have, I decided I would take that.

I've uploaded the latest code to the badge, and now made it display a name, using instructions on the wiki page (TiLDA MKe) and help from people on IRC. Maybe I'll try something more advanced later!
