MAKE pal, advisory board member and all around fun hacker guy Joe Grand loads up the details for this year’s DEFCON badge hacking contest… via Hackaday. Joe writes –

Well, here we are again! For the 3rd year in a row, I’ve had the honor of designing the DEFCON badge. And, for the 3rd year in a row, DT has been gracious enough to let me host a contest around hacking the badge. This is the first year that it will be an official contest announced in advance, etc., as previously we’ve kept the whole thing under wraps until the first day of the con.

Here’s a little description of the contest…

The DEFCON Badge Hacking Contest awards the top 3 most ingenious, obscure, mischievous, obscene, or technologically astounding badge modifications created over the weekend. No longer just a boring piece of passive material, the badge is now a full-featured, active electronic product, and it exists for your hacking pleasure.
