The HackerGarage mission is to provide an open space to the people who wants to create, learn or only talk about technology and maker topics.
The badge is a technology piece that was designed, tested, coded and now maintained by HackerGarage communities. This little piece of electronics is a beautiful reminder of the spirit of the people that was part of the project in the past and a constant proof that places like this must exist for the people no matter what.
It has an ATmega328 running at 16Mhz, 7 while LEDs, microphone with audio amplifier, light sensor, 2 x AAA battery holder and all MCU pins are accessible for expansion.
