An amazing badge for an amazing conference. The Hackaday Belgrade hardware badge is itself a retro computer, running a BASIC interpreter, and emulating a Z80 computer with the CP/M operating system.
This badge plays music, it has a color screen, serial communications functionality is built into the expansion header, and it's ready for hacking! The evening of the conference we'll turn the venue into a hardware hacking village. Hardware demos and presentations will continue inside the village, along with lightning talks, live EDM and DJ sets, food, drink, and the best time you can have this Spring!
Study this project log and get to work planning your badge hacks!
