Brainy is a beautiful PCB pin badge, it is shaped like a brain and it has a funny face with a band-aid. Wear it and shine everywhere!
It has 8 charlieplexed white Led's, 6 on the front and 2 on the back. They simulate the neurons activity. It is powered with a CR2032 battery and has a button to select the desired animation. Press it for change the animation or to turn it off (low power mode).
Is controlled by a PIC12LF1822 and all the design files are open source, so you can make your own animations and upload it with the built-in ICSP connector. Use your brain and customize your badge!!!
I designed the PCB on Eagle with the help of Inkscape and svgtoeagle.
I had a brain surgery on march 28 2020, I got a Ventriculoperitoneal Shunt due to a tumor in my tectal plate that was causing hydrocephalus. The tumor can't be removed, it's to risky. But with the valve I am going to be ok for a while. Some people helped me get through this, so I made this badge for thanking them in the most memorable way I could think.
You could also help me with medical expenses purchasing this badge!

It will no longer ship with a CR2032 battery due to international shipping regulations, you will need to supply your own. Sorry for the inconvenience :/
Note: Remove the battery if it will be stored for a long time.
