The hearty backlit badge is a simple interactive badge that is shaped like a heart and lights up when you tap it or move it sharply.
I wanted to make the simplest possible circuit that did something interesting and interactive. I thought for awhile, and came up with this.
The vibration sensing circuit reacts to you organically, lighting up when moved suddenly or when tapped. It is never fully on or off, and is always waiting to react to you. It consumes virtually zero power when left alone, and does not need to be turned off.
It uses just one capacitor, resistor, transistor and switch, one of each of all of the most basic electronic components. It can be fully understood by a beginner, demonstrating how each of the components work.
The currently shipping version includes the SAO header. This is placed underneath the battery connector, so that they cannot both be connected at once. Those so inclined and possessing soldering skill should remove the battery connected in order to use SAO. If you have no interest in any of that, don't worry.
