BuildBrighton Science Festival Workshops 1
BuildBrighton - Brighton’s Hackerspace ran its badge making and "soldering is easy" workshop last weekend. The workshop involved soldering together badges consisting of an RGB LED, a microcontroller, battery, IR LED and IR receiver. The badges have a unique ID which is represented as a colour on the LED. They constantly transmit their ID using IR, other badges can receive the transmissions and collect colours which they cycle through on the RGB LED. They also have a zombie game mode where a badge can become "infected" and flashes red. It will then infect all other badges that receive its transmissions.
