A project log for Badgemaker - Name Tag Fabrication Made Easy!

This machine allows children to get into touch with the personal fabrication technology by enabling them to create their own name tags.

To evaluate the device a user study was conducted within a children workshop consisting of children at the age of 8 to 11. 

The children did have great success operating the device and seemed to be very interested. Some did even operate the device without any prior instructions. Of course, we also unveiled some problems. E.g. some instructions like how to open the safety door were not clear enough so that shy participants did sometimes ask how to proceed when they were not sure.
