Sure, the New Orleans Maker Faire VIP Badge is your opportunity to help our event and show your support for the New Orleans maker community. But what’s the real reason you should purchase one? Along with your badge kit you will also enjoy priority seating at our talks and workshops along with an special invitation to our meet-and-greet with Keynote Speaker Microsoft Technology Evangelist Lawrence Crumpton Friday the night before the Faire! This is an exclusive design and kit that is only offered to the first 50 VIP ticket purchasers. Get yours today!

Each exclusive badge kit contains the following components:

  • Arduino Pro Micro with ATmega32U4 5V/16MHz
  • White 128X64 0.96 inch OLED with SPI
  • 3 x AAA Battery Pack
  • Blue 5mm LED (quantity 3)
  • 560 Ohm Resistor, 1/4 W, 5%
  • Neck lanyard

About the Design

The design focus this year aimed to give badge holders more options to customize their badges in order to show off their individuality. The laser cut plywood evokes a sense of the maker movement and gives you the largest possible range of finishes (or leave it raw!). The kit is easy to assemble, but can easily be expanded with more components. To help you get started, badge holders get access to a GitHub repository with an example Arduino sketch and the design files ready to be modified. If you don’t have a soldering iron or just want a little help making the badge your own, join us for our meetup.

Badge Build Meetup – April 13th, 5pm to 7pm at the Delgado FabLab. Register for this event.

Don’t forget, this is a limited edition kit and only 50 are available to the public!
