-==== r0ket ====+====r0ket==== 
 +r0ket is an electronic name tag and much more. 
-r0ket offers the possibility to make cool m0dules, without having the costs for standard parts (controller, ​display, batteries)For an event you can chose an interesting ​(and expensive) ​component and focus workshopsgames and experiments on that component. +  * Proudly ​display ​your nick on  [[https://​​camp/​2011/​wiki/​Main_Page|Camp 2011]] and future events 
-For small project you have a nice development board that can be extended ​with already existing m0dules. +  * Have fun with the camp-applications or alternate firmwares 
-And you can combine all the m0dules you want, keep using old ones and show those you developed yourself.+  * 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 displayCPU, power supply ​and RF 
 +  * Rapidly develop for and with diverse hardware by combining extensions designed by the community
-==== history ​==== +====Motivation==== 
-After seeing lot'​s ​of badges ​for different events (next hope, defcon, troopers 11, eh10, ...), each with its own great functions, the following went through our heads:+After collecting lots of badges ​form 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 you can'​t ​really wear them again +  * It's a pity that you usually ​can'​t ​use them again for a different event 
-  * development ​after the conferences ​is little/little acknowledged +  * Development ​after the event is rare and little acknowledged 
-  * each time you get a hand full of use-once ​batteries +  * Usually ​you end up with heaps of empty batteries 
-  * most of the budget goes to standard parts+  * Most of the budget goes to standard parts, reinventing the same basic functionality again and again
-it would be great to have a badge that offers some standard components: +====Features==== 
-  * rechargeable battery +r0ket aims to be really useful event badge in itself while also providing a solid foundation for future extensions 
-  * display + 
-  * communication (RF, maybe LEDs) +  * Based on ARM Cortex M3 32-Bit microcontroler 
-  * no additional components for programming needed ​(except for standard usb connector+  * Unbrickable,​ no-programmer-needed USB-bootloader 
-  * connectors ​for additional badges of different events/​purposes that can be combined freely+  * High capacity lithium-polymer accumulator chargeable via USB 
 +  * 2.4 GHz radio interface ​(and maybe optical communication,​ be surprised
 +  * Sockets ​for extensions ([[m0dul|m0duls]] and hackerbus)
-r0ket is what came out.
