The Safe Mode BadgeBuddy is a simple and fun kit for introducing soldering skills. It features self-cycling rainbow LEDs to provide a cool, colorful effect that remains accessible as a first time soldering project. The Safe Mode BadgeBuddy was updated for DEF CON 28 Safe Mode from the original BadgeBuddy. The original BadgeBuddy was released at DEF CON 27 and is still included in HackerBox 0045 - Spark Net and in the HackerBoxes Starter Workshop.
The Safe Mode BadgeBuddy was featured for introducing soldering skills in the HackerBoxes Learn to Solder Workshop streamed from the Hardware Hacking Village during DEF CON 28 SAFE MODE.
