Pokemon Go Arduino Safety Badge

Do you ever find yourself almost running into things while you are playing Pokemon Go? It is very easy to get so engrossed in the game that you forget about your surroundings. With this awesome project from Seeed Studio you can build your own “safety badge” which alerts you of potential hazards.

Safety Badge

The badge uses an ultrasonic distance sensor to detect potential obstacles, a vibration motor (similar to the types of motors found in most phones) to alert you when you are approaching a hazard, and an Arduino to interface between the sensor and the motor. To get started building your own safety badge checkout the following link.


Want to make your own badge but don’t know where to get started with Arduino? Check out our Experimenter’s Kit which provides a perfect platform to learn the basics.

Experimenters Kit

The kit is comprised of a wide range of parts including a servo, sensors, lights, buttons, a sound module and more. Importantly, a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to ensure that the kit contains everything you need to get started with Arduino. All these great parts would be useless without some form of instructions which is why we have developed a comprehensive project and instruction booklet to get you started. Check out the product page to find out more.
