Post-BABSCon Update

What, do you think I’d be original with my titles?

BABSCon did well, I sold a bunch of things, met a bunch of people, and didn’t have to yell at anyone. The weather was fantastic, especially compared to Maryland, and I had a great time with friends.

So. What’s next?

First up is that I have to continue working on re-chipping the badges. I didn’t get them all re-chipped before BABSCon, and there are a few with other issues as well. It seems that the hot air causes issues with the style of buttons I’m using, so I have to remove and replace those, too.

Beyond that, I have uploaded the code and PCB files to GitHub. You can find them here: – I’ll be updating this as I, well, update the code. The first order of business there is to get all the parts working, followed by getting the menu system implemented. Only after those are done will the work on the R2 PCB revision begin.

I will also be working on getting pictures of the Mini, the Mini Case, and the Arduineigh posted on appropriate pages. And, in general, I’m going to try and be better about posting things on here, as well.



Andon started a company called Matchfire Electronics after creating a digital Color Communication Badge. A while later, he discovered that there was a bigger, older company with the Matchfire name, so the company was re-named Phoenixborn Technologies. And now we're at the present, without missing any details at all.
