ToorCon 14 badge
Attendees at the recent ToorCon 14 conference in San Diego were provided this RF enabled badge. Containing the same CC1110 radio circuit as the poular IM-Me, its a sub-1 GHz wireless transceiver controlled directly from your computer. The badge was designed by hardware maker Michael Ossmann, who states, “The ToorCon 14 Badge shipped with RfCat firmware and a USB bootloader installed, so conference attendees were able to start experimenting with just a USB cable, a laptop, and the RfCat software. Although I am a fan of software defined radio, sometimes a wireless transceiver IC is all you need to do some interesting things, and RfCat is the easiest way I know to get started.”
The badge is entirely open source with the files available on GitHub.
