Badges are back – and they’re digital

Remember when pin badges were cool? A simple piece of metal and a pin could tell everyone that you liked bands they hadn’t even heard of, make enigmatic statements about the world (“Chill Out”, “I (Heart) NY”), and generally spruce up any outfit. That, of course, was the 1980s.

Since then badges have been given a bad name by being worn on caps in Pizza Hut, but hope springs eternal. Our attention’s been drawn to these fantastic LED badges, available from iwantoneofthose.com (motto: “stuff you don’t need, but you really, really want”).

Have any message you want in up to 120 characters scrolling across your lapel – the battery lasts 18 hours, and you can change the message on the go.
