Badger

Aim: make an awesome e-ink badge to wear at conferences & meetups

Hardware:

  • I'm using the BADGEr board initially developed for Open Hardware Summit 2013. It can be purchased on seeed for $50.
  • The BADGEr doesn't have an USB port, I had to use serial instead. I used the SparkFun FTDI Basic 5V breakout to connect.
    • Make sure to install the FTDI drivers first.
    • Supposedly, Apple drivers have to be uninstalled first on Yosemite, however I did not have this problem.

Software:

  • e-reader library for Arduino
    • The libraries don't seem to be compatible with Arduino 1.5 - Use version 1.0.6 of the IDE instead.
  • When uploading code, make sure to set the board as Arduino Pro or Pro Mini (3.3V, 8MHz) w/ Atmega328
