This kit is perfect for your next hackerspace meeting, convention, or anywhere you want your nametag to proclaim that YOU ARE A MAKER! Each kit includes 50 red LEDs that you solder in place to spell out up to 5 characters. The included microcontroller is pre-programmed with 4 built-in display modes: all on, letter chase, fade, and blink. The nametag kit is a perfect first or second soldering project and is the greatest alternative to stick on nametags that we’ve ever seen. via Make Online
