OSH Park is producing electronic conference badges for the 2018 Open Hardware Summit. The hardware has been designed Alex Camilo, based on concepts from the ESP trINKet by Mike Rankin. The badge features an ESP32 microcontroller and a 2.13″ E-Paper display.
OSH Park shared project for the Rev 3 by Alex Camilo :
We expect this to be the final revision.
It is ordered on Super Swift today and should be validated next weekend. This will allow us to order the full quantity PCB panels in August 13th. Assembly is estimated to be 10 business days from the day when all components and PCBs are received.

Terminal output on Rev 2 prototypes:
The Rev 2 prototypes have NodeMCU boards soldered on to the back to serve as a USB to serial adapter.
One of the Rev 2 prototype boards that Alex sent me has the default e-paper demo:
The other has MicroPython installed! 🙂

From Christopher Wang on the Hackaday blog:
The Open Source Hardware Association is now accepting applications for the Ada Lovelace fellowship which provides free admission to the Open Hardware Summit and a $500 travel stipend. One of OSHWA’s goals is to foster a more diverse community within open source. As part of this, Ada Lovelace Fellowships are open to women, LGBTA+, and people of color. There are a total of 10 fellowships available and applications are due by April 30th. The Open Hardware Summit will be held on September 27th at MIT.
The fellowship program, founded by Addie Wagenknecht and Alicia Gibb in 2013, builds on the ideal that Open Hardware is one way to reduce the barriers associated in access to technology. Removing some of the financial barriers associated with attending the Summit will help to ensure more people of diverse backgrounds are involved in shaping the Open Hardware world. In addition to the talks shared at the gathering, over the last several year OSWHA has been evolving the Open Hardware definition and an Open Hardware certification.
