The 2014 Electromagnetic Field camp is set for August 29-31, 2014.
This annual gathering will be held in Bletchley, UK, and feature a camping festival with a power grid and high-speed internet access; a temporary village of geeks, crafters, and technology enthusiasts that’s lit up by night, and buzzing with activity during the day. Previous events included talks about everything from genetic modification to electronics, blacksmithing to high-energy physics, reverse engineering to lock picking, computer security to crocheting, and quadcopters to brewing.

This year’s conference badge is known as TiLDA MKe and will keep attendees informed of the latest schedule displayed on the badge using automatic updates from a network of radio base stations across the camp site. “At its heart the badge is an Arduino Due compatible 32bit ARM Cortex M3. A rechargeable battery will keep it running for days, and you can charge it over USB when the juice runs out. We added a 128×64 pixel LCD screen, two RGB LEDs, a radio transceiver, joystick, accelerometer, gyroscope, speaker, infrared, and all sorts of other fun parts. It’s compatible with Arduino shields and has dedicated connectors for electronic textiles.”

Tickets are still available online.
