mkam1 21 580x400 New in the Maker Shed: HELLO! My Name is LED Nametag Kit

True to Matt Richardson’s post, we now have HELLO! My Name is LED Nametag Kits available in the Maker Shed. This kit is perfect for your next hackerspace meeting, convention, or anywhere you want your nametag to proclaim that YOU ARE A MAKER! Each kit includes 50 red LEDs that you solder in place to spell out up to 5 characters. The included microcontroller is pre-programmed with 4 built-in display modes: all on, letter chase, fade, and blink. The nametag kit is a perfect first or second soldering project and is the greatest alternative to stick on nametags that we’ve ever seen.

Parts List:

  • Nametag PCB
  • Attiny13 (microcontroller)
  • Button
  • Coin cell battery and holder
  • Pinback
  • Resistor
  • 50 RED LEDs

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
