An educational toy… No, really. That’s why I created it. That and to have something to break the ice at tech conferences that I go to. My badge is inspired by the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express, has some Adafruit HalloWing elements thrown in, plus a cheap OLED and the #BadgeLife SAO connector.
