  • What happens if one person takes another person's badge? You need a fallback for that. But if you've got that covered, then the system looks great.

    But better still is to print badges on demand. Leave the searching piece entirely up to the computer. I don't know what those cost though.

    • Yes, my variant with a rope is a kind of joke, but at Ukrainian event noone took other's badge. We thought about printing on demand. But I prefer "hard & rigid" badge to awful piece of paper inserted into plastic pocket. There is no time to print, cut, and then laminate the badge. The only possible solution we found is using special "badge" printers that can print on plastic cards. But although such devices are extrimely expencive (not less than $2000), they do not allow hi-speed printing. Typical printers produce one badge in 40 seconds. That is not faster than manual search.
