The Open Hardware Summit is coming on Thursday, September 27th at MIT. OSH Park and Screaming Circuits are producing an electronic conference badge this year for the Summit. The badge features an e-paper display and an ESP32 microcontroller.
All 300 badges assembled by Screaming Circuits have arrived!
Thanks to Duane Benson and the rest of the team at Screaming Circuits for all the support on this project.

From All the Badges of DEF CON 26 (vol 3) on Hackaday:
E-Paper Badge is a Hint at Great Things to Come
Friend of Hackaday, Drew Fustini, came to our Breakfast at DEF CON meetup sporting a name badge of his own design. The E-Paper Badge uses a Teensy LC to drive a 2.15″ E-Paper display. The row of capacitive touch buttons to the left allow the image to be changed, and he just happened to have the Jolly Wrencher in the gallery of choices for this picture.
This badge gets me really excited for this year’s Open Hardware Summit which is at MIT on September 27th. This year’s badge is a collaborative effort between a group on Hackaday.io! It’s basically Drew’s badge on steroids, and he told me the experience of working with a team has been really positive. It seems each time the group hits a hard problem or a pile of work that needs to be done, someone on the team grabs it and runs with it. It’s a great example of both certified open hardware and team development.
Hackaday will be hosting a dinner the evening before the 2018 Open Hardware Summit:
DATE AND TIME: Wed, September 26, 2018, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
LOCATION: 321 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139
It’s Open Hardware Summit time of year again and Hackaday is holding our 2nd annual Women in Hardware dinner at The Miracle of Science Bar + Grill.
It’s the night before the Open Hardware Summit begins so you’ll have lots of opportunity to meet and chat with others pre-conference. We love it when you bring your finest blinky, flashy, IoT, hacks, wearable, or other DIY items for us to paw (er…. look at), but bringing yourself is the most important.
Dinner is sponsored by Supplyframe/ Hackaday. The Miracle of Science Bar + Grill can accommodate food allergies and preferences. They ask that you just let them know when you order.
All who identify as women are welcome!
Please RSVP so we can call the restaurant in advance to let them know how many to expect.
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.
Rev 2 photos:
And for those interested, here is a link to a gallery:
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.
