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

  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.
