SCALE adds hardware hacking focused Badge Track

Electronic badges are the "in thing" these days and some of the more elegant ones garner a lot of attention. Last Defcon, some of the most sought after badges were the Mr. Robot badge and the Darknet badge. We are happy to announce that the creators of both these badges will be at SCALE presenting their creations, and the process of design. Who knows, we might even get a preview of the next badge!

DC Darknet will also be running a game at SCALE and offer a completely different badge for sale at their booth.
