DFRobot Sep 28 2018 1337

Have you ever been in a awkward situation where you’ve been in a office for a long time, but your colleagues just can’t remember your name clearly. Now there is a marvelous name badge for you to solve that problem. This badge is made of tricolor E-ink display designed by DFRobot. You can DIY own style for the name badge and add your unique idea into it. Just like this!

OK, let’s get start!

Materials you may need in this project:

  • 3.3V Micro Lithium Battery     ×1
How to connect them?

The positive pole of the battery → The left pin of the push-button switch
The right pin of the push-button switch→ ESP32+
ESP32→ The negative pole of the battery
Fasten the Display to ESP32


The product WiKi on DFRobot website really helped me a lot.

First, we need to draw a monochrome bitmap image on the drawing board of Windows. And then convert the image into arrays via the software lcd-image-converter.exe in the WIKI. The arrays are the code of the program. So I will just skip over it here.

After burning the program, we could print out our work though 3D printer and assemble all parts together. Then install a pin on the name badge. That’s all!

This is my work. It’s interesting, right! Just start to DIY your own name badge!
