Oh, the endless conferences and meet-and-greets. Instead of filling out yet another nametag, showcase your soldering skills with a DIY HELLO! My Name Is LED Nametag Kit. Is it a teensy bit nerdy? Yes. Is it also kind of fun and cool? Yes. Consider it as a gift for someone not afraid of melting metal.
“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.”
Available from Maker Shed, $19.99.
