I got some badger boards left over, i am happy to give a couple out, they are actually pretty cool and come with a super cap as the main power source, a lcd and other bits, they are a ARM core 32 bit chip

The programmer and debugger is built in, i should have a usb cable you can have as well. It will run your own code as well as the factory code, my reason.....

I am interested to see what others can do with this neat little dev kit. Its really low power, i have one that displays the light level (its got a light detector on the board) humidity and temperature, it takes a reading roughly every 5 mins and last around 9 days on a single charge of the super cap via the USB. Ypou can add a battery and it has a small dev area on the board.

Think of it as a competition, I got a box of 250 i have to give away at a fair in July, i am looking for ideas to make these badges interesting.

Nah not really, i am out of ideas for what to do with it! I have 6 small projects but could do with a couple more to include with the set. Its a giveaway, kind of like a business card for county fair coming up. The 90 second charge thing on the site is just that, leave it charging a while and it lasts a long time if you use the low power tricks.

I got the boards free, so apart from a couple i have kept, i decided to hand out the others as a sort of business card. They are designed as a badge which is cool, they can do a fair bit and have some power in them.
