DIY LED Nametag Kit: No, Your Name is Not Slim Shady

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 18, 2011


While it’s not as flexible as say, one of those moving message board nametags, this one is definitely more geeky, since you have to actually assemble the electronic components for yourself.

Analogmachines’ LED nametag kit includes everything you need (except for a soldering iron, solder and wire cutters) to construct your own custom LED name badge. Of course, the biggest problem with this kit is that the size of the grid pretty much limits you to a 5 letter name. Anything longer than that, and you might have to wear more than one badge side by side, which might look silly. Though if you’re wearing one of these in the first place, you probably don’t mind looking a little goofy in the first place.

The kit comes with 50 LEDs, and comes pre-programmed to turn all letters on, letter chase, fade or blink. Source code is provided, so you can do your own animations too.

You can grab the LED Nametag Kit over at Etsy for $20 now.
