The LayerOne security conference is fast approaching and [charliex] is doing his best to put the finishing touches on this year’s conference badge.
Around the perimeter of the badge is 48 LEDs driven by two LED drivers. This allows for some crazy hardware hacking to create anything from a TV-B-GONE to a bulbdial clock. There’s also a few extra switches and sensors that can be hacked to do some interesting things, but where this badge really shines is the addition of an OLED display, allowing it to transform into an XMEGA Xprotolab, a small oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, and frequency generator. Yes, this badge can be hacked, but it’s also a tool for hacking.
There’s an impressive amount of work that went into this badge, a feat even more impressive given the fact that the LayerOne conference is this weekend and the PCBs for these badges won’t arrive until tomorrow. We’ll be the first to say we’re masters of procrastination, but [charliex] really cut it close here.

wish i could get ahold of one of these
Hmmm, the LayerOne badge is not a OneLayer PCB…
I was just thinking the same thing!
“There’s also a … Read the rest”
Please bring the new article format back!
Agree. That’s a low gimmick for a site as awesome as this. Please return it to a full blurb instead of the teaser..
It’s such an unfriendly thing to happen to this site, I still haven’t read any explanation as to why this has been imposed on everyone.
Agree. It’s extremely annoying and totally unnecessary to have to open up a new tab for each and every article.
LayerOne, LevelOne? Which is it?
Uh, Brian, it’s LayerOne I think, not LevelOne:
That’s funny, it was the right name first then it was changed to the wrong name…
.. a small oscilloscope .. lol
Small Oscilloscope: Have you SEEN an xProtolab? Cutest, tiniest little thing. Very useful.
Is hackaday going to be at LayerOne? I’d love to meet you fuckers!
Sorry, none of us are close enough to make it this year. I’d love to meet you too fucker!
I keep trying to get these fuckers to show up.
Anyone want to mail one of these to canada?
