#BADGELIFE

AND!XOR (pronounced AND not X OR)

Based in California with backgrounds in Hardware and Software Engineering. 

The team spans from SoCal to Silicon Valley, through Texas, to DC.

We make stuff. We drink beer. In no particular order

We design and manufacture custom hardware, write embedded software, tailored into wearable electronic pieces of art known colloquially as "badges." In addition to an immersive hacking challenges, all badges leverage the dark arts of RF for collaborative interaction and gaming. These exposed circuit boards showcase blinky LED's, silky smooth color animations, games, and interactive puzzles with ANSI art.
