Show the world your ruby affection and live the #BadgeLife!
What does it do?
Besides being a stylish ruby pin, it can blink a few animations :)
What do I need?
All you need is soldering gear (iron, tin, tweezers). Everything else is in the kit.
I don't know how to solder!
It's easier than it looks, but a bit of help to kickstart your hardware adventure doesn't hurt. Ask your colleagues or friends for help. Or seek help in a hackerspace near you, they will love to teach you the ropes!
Anything I need to know before I start?
Be aware that all parts - except for the resistors - have a polarity. Their orientation on the board is important.

I want to write my own software
Easy, but be aware that you need C skills to proceed :/
- Setup an ATTiny development environment, e.g. Atmel Studio
- Buy a hardware programmer. Make sure it supports TPI, e.g. USBasp
- Hookup VCC, GND, TPIC, TPID and RES to your programmer and power it with 5 Volts
