Using the Badge

Turn it On

Connect the battery to the battery connector on the Circuit Playground.

Attach the Badge

Use the Magnetic Pin Back to attatch the badge to your shirt or jacket.

Changing the color

Pressing the center of the badge will change the color to Red, Yellow, or Blue. You should feel a 'click' when this happens.

Note: The code we uploaded looks for a right side button was press to let you cycle throgh team colors. Pressing the center of the badge just presses both buttons. Since the right side button is the only one used, pressing the left side button as well still changes the color of the badge.

Safty flash

You may notice that moving or tapping the badge makes it flash a bright white light. The badge is set up to detect a certain amount of movement before it starts to flash white. So it will only flash while you are walking or running. Otherwise the light will pulse with your team color.

Recharging the Battery

Unplug the battery and connect it to the Micro Lipo charger.
