The aim of the EMF badge is to give people interesting hardware they've probably not experimented with before while being simple enough that anyone can play with it.
EMF2016 - TiLDA Mkπ
See this years badge announcement on our blog
EMF2014 - TiLDA MKe
The TiLDA MKe project is code named "ElectroMagnetic Boogaloo"
The MKe is an entirely new design, based on the Arduino Due. It brings an LCD display, Accelerometer and Gyro, along with a long-range wireless transceiver. The original specification was to give people live schedule updates and camp notifications, but the hardware was capable of much more.
Please Note: There are a couple of minor hardware and some firmware issues with the MKe that might be effecting your badge. If you've let the magic smoke out of your charge controller or have tried to re-flash and ended up with nothing but a couple of dimly glowing lights then DO NOT DESPAIR -It's recoverable and fixes, documentation and lots of firmware are still being produced :)
EMW2013 - SiNE
Each attendee of Electromagnetic Wave received a SiNE badge, allowing them to take part in a treasure hunt based around the boat. By solving the clues, attendees were directed to an object or location either on or near the Stubnitz. The clue letter was also the first letter of the answer - large matching letters fitted with IR code transmitters were stored at each location. Holding your badge in front of the letter lit the corresponding light on a badge, allowing the user to collect them all!
