-==== r0ket ==== +====r0ket==== 
-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 for a m0dule and focus workshops, games and experiments on that component. +r0ket is an electronic name tag and much more
-For small project you have a nice development board that can be extended with already existing m0dules.  +
-And you can combine all the m0dules you want, keep using old ones and show those you developed yourself. +
-r0ket is based on an cortex m3 ARM processor, a standard in the industry ​and supported by many free software tools, e.g. gcc, gdb. +
-You can't brick it, thanks to the integrated usb bootloader, located in the ROM. That bootloader also makes flashing new software easy.  +
-The battery has a higher capacity than the usual for badges, r0ket will last even if you play with it a lot! +
-r0ket is compatible with the AMD projects, with display and buttons interesting new functions can develop. +
-==== history ==== +
-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:+
  
-  * It's a pity you can't really wear them again +  * Proudly display your nick on  [[https://​events.ccc.de/​camp/​2011/​wiki/​Main_Page|Camp 2011]] and future events 
-  * development after the conferences is little/​little acknowledged +  * Have fun with the camp-applications or alternate firmwares 
-  * each time you get hand full of use-once batteries +  * Use it as foundation for your own microelectronics project  
-  * most of the budget goes to standard parts+  * Provide an interesting component as [[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
  
-it would be great to have badge that offers some standard components: +====Motivation==== 
-  * rechargeable battery +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: 
-  * display + 
-  * communication (RFmaybe LEDs) +  * It'​s ​pity that you usually can't use them again for a different event 
-  * no additional components for programming ​needed (except for standard usb connector+  * Development after the event is rare and little acknowledged 
-  * connectors ​for additional badges of different events/​purposes that can be combined freely+  * Usually you end up with heaps of empty batteries 
 +  * Most of the budget goes to standard partsreinventing 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 ([[m0dul|m0duls]] and hackerbus)
  
-r0ket is what came out.
