Together with the Fab Lab Aachen for the Personal Photonics project, funded by the german Federal Ministry of Education and Research and supported by the Make Light initiative, we are now taking the 'Badgemaker' with us to several exhibitions and Maker Faires. The device did not only seem to excite children yet; we also received good feedback of many different aged visitors and makers of the fairs - enjoying their new illuminated acrylic name tag souvenirs.

-- As the 'Badgemaker' has now fabricated several hundreds of name tags, the machine unveils to be more robust than we initially thought.
