Pictures of DEFCON 27 Hacker Summer Camp Badges

DEFCON 27 had hackers pouring in from all over the world to endure the scorching Las Vegas 100 degree Fahrenheit heat.
From August 8-11th hackers were packed across the three casinos which held the majority of the DEFCON talks, villages and CTFs.

Mixing and mingling at DEFCON always lead to people showing you the beautiful blinky hardware badges they are wearing.

Like the saying goes what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas unless you are a hacker/maker and know to share your hardware with others!
Let’s get started on the slide show:

Godzilla blue blinky badge
Godzilla badge made by @alt_bier (twitter) touch-enabled on the silver parts to have Godzilla spitfire

 

PCB Showing Grumpy Cat in a suit
Large PCB art made by @strangepartscom in homage to everyone’s favorite cat icon, Grumpy Cat who passed away

 

Purple Badge with a lion on one side and a cat on the other
SAO “Shitty-Add-On” from OSH Park made by the one and only talented @mrtwinkletwink

 

Colorful Ironman looking badge
This beautiful badge was again made by the talented @mrtwinkletwink who sells his beautiful PCB art on his Tindie store

 

Beautiful RGB Colorful LED CUBE
This jaw-dropping iCEBreaker FPGA cube was a collaborative effort made by 2 people one of which was @esden

 

Robot with pool tube as legs and dinosaur socks over them
The popular noodle made by the talented @spetku also made an appearance at DEFCON here is noodle in all its glory and dino socks

 

Black and white badge with a person wearing a hoodie and an air mask with colorful sunglasses
The exclusive @ANDnXOR badge with the beautiful packaging did not cease to impress everyone at DEFCON either!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. Aww, you missed the infamous Hack For Satan badge! That one was a fun puzzle to solve. DEFCON Shoot had a great badge this year as well, complete with a microphone to count your shots at the range.
