A blinky little badge celebrating the successful first flight of the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter - the first powered, controlled flight on another world! The front features artwork by Sofie Shen - a gold stylized silhouette of Ingenuity set against a red Martian sky. A red LED on the antenna, powered by an ATtiny85V MCU, blinks a helicopter-esque spin-up and spin-down pattern before settling to a slow, low-power blinking. It's powered by a CR2032 coin cell battery (included).
Note: this is a first-revision badge & contains a small mistake which does not affect its operation - see errata below.
You can get it with either a magnet on the back, or a (butterfly clutch) pin. It's small enough (5cm x 5cm) to wear comfortably on a shirt or bag. This badge was hand-assembled with a soldering iron by yours truly. A kit will also be available eventually.
The first revision of this badge contains a small mistake - the wrong footprint was used for the ATtiny85V, necessitating a "bodge" to make it fit. Specifically, one of the pins is soldered to a trace and three others are left unconnected. The badge still works as intended, and I don't foresee any issues - a dab of glue has been added to ensure it stays put. However, if your badge stops working due to this bodge, I'd be happy to replace it for you at no cost. Details can be found on this Twitter thread
