HELLO! My Name Is LED Nametag Kit

Posted on by Brandon Klein

With the HELLO! My Name Is LED Nametag Kit you can stand out from the crowd, instead of scrawling your name on the ubiquitous "Hello, My Name Is:" stickers. Next time you're at a meet and greet party at your local hackerspace, there will be no mistaking 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 name tags that we've ever seen.


Please note: This kit requires basic soldering and will take between 15-30 minutes to assemble depending on skill level. Also, while there is a power saving "off" mode, we recommend removing the battery when not wearing the nametag to conserve battery life.
