Steampunk Badge Is A Hit At FETC

The response has been amazing for the Generation 4.0 Steampunk Conference Badge. People stopped me and asked what it was and if I made it. I told them how it worked and showed them the connected Raspberry Pi. There were a few selfies, which was kind of new to me. Nevertheless, everybody enjoyed it and seem inspired.

Found a few challenges. I’ll likely mod the alligator clip attachment system. The clips bend and are hard to get lined up correctly. The thumb screws loosened over time, as well, so those will have to be changed a bit.

I’ll post something later about my “Building A Conference Presentation And Manipulation Apparatus” talk, this afternoon.
