This electronic business card is a tech-savvy way to expand your network. Created by Tom Ward, the business credentials let new contacts know more about you with the touch of a button. This is possible due to dot-matrix technology and a 5 by 15 grid of LED lights connected to a single chip PIC micro-controller. The card-like gadget is consistently in sleep mode, unless activated by pressing one of the buttons.
Ward provides an instructional video on how to create your own electronic business card. The device only costs about $5 USD to make, but previous electronics experience would definitely be an asset.
These cool credentials are ideal for tech industry professionals, as well as those with a passion for electronics and DIY projects.
