we are almost done with our first release of "skill badges" these are for makers, hackers, educators, students and just about anyone who wants to reward, or be rewarded, for learning useful skills. there are a few that are not shown, we're wrapping up some more designs but they'll be added shortly: blue smoke, drawdio, circuit bending and a few surprises. these are made in the USA (go NJ!) physical, GORGEOUS, embroidered badges :)
any company logo/name used was contacted and we were given permission, we wanted to be inclusive and get a lot of different ones for launch. some of the badges like MAKE and FIRST are just ones we are going to resell, since they had great ones already. the badges we design will be creative commons and on github. we have a great vendor and designer that works with us that gets open-source!
we've had the soldering badge or years now, and have had these designs waiting for years. it took us awhile to have the right partners and people to finally get these done.
let us know what you think of them, we're very happy with them :)
they're rolling out here and here over the next few days/weeks/months and years :)http://www.adafruit.com/category/70http://www.adafruit.com/educators
