r0ket

r0ket is an electronic name tag and much more.

  • Proudly display your nick on Camp 2011 and future events
  • Have fun with the camp-applications or alternate firmwares
  • Use it as foundation for your own microelectronics project
  • Provide an interesting component as a m0dul for your event or workshop and rely on r0ket for the basics like display, CPU, power supply and RF
  • Rapidly develop for and with diverse hardware by combining extensions designed by the community

Motivation

After collecting lots of badges from different events (defcon, hope, troopers 11, eh2010, …), each with it's own great features and applications, the following went through our heads:

  • It's a pity that you usually can't use them again for a different event
  • Development after the event is rare and little acknowledged
  • Usually you end up with heaps of empty batteries
  • Most of the budget goes to standard parts, reinventing the same basic functionality again and again

Features

r0ket aims to be a really useful event badge in itself while also providing a solid foundation for future extensions

  • Based on ARM Cortex M3 32-Bit microcontroller
  • Unbrickable, no-programmer-needed USB-bootloader
  • High capacity lithium-polymer battery, rechargeable via USB
  • 2.4 GHz radio interface (and maybe optical communication, be surprised)
  • Sockets for extensions (m0duls and hackerbus)
