What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

My Story

Any one who attends DEFCON knows the unofficial badges have become a permanent part of the experience. As an attendee and DJ I have enjoyed the full DEFCON experience. With the help of some friends I have designed a badge that will combine both the badge life and my DJ events. I truly hope the badge is enjoyed by those that back it.  

Functionality:

This badge is decked out in LEDs. and a wireless card. There will be multiple flashing modes for the bade. There will be some hidden features that will be discovered during DEFCON. 

  • Chill mode - slow blinks, for when you need it mellow.
  • Bling mode- Keeping it flashy!
  • Secret mode - (will be unlocked at DEFCON)

Extras:

There will be some extras included with the badge. Figuring out where and what, is part of the fun of the badge. 

This is an open source project. All board files and code will be made available after DEFCON.

About the Creators:

Jake (@s7a73farm

I am part of this awesome hacker community, and want to contribute any way possible. I DJ and Hack all the things. I use every chance I have to combine the two. I have wanted to do my own badge for sometime now. 

Michael Whiteley (@compukidmike)

Be sides being a DEFCON 24 Black badge winner, and building electronic badges for other cons. Mike helped Jake design and build that badge. This badge would still be a napkin drawing with out Mike's mad badge skills!

Davis (@gr3yR0n1n) Davis has been a part of the hacker community for a few years now and volunteers at different cons whenever he can. He loves to work on firmware and badges and is super excited to help Jake with this badge.

Risks and challenges

There are risks with anything, however I've done my best to mitigate them with this project.

During the design phase I wanted to build a badge that was simple and could meet my vision of my goal of (Secret mode) function.

Prototypes have been programmed tested and validated that they function. Between now and delivery we will continue to work on the the Secret Mode. ***Updating Badge design. The Side LEDs are going to be replaced to match the rest of the LEDs. due to lack of desired effect. and the potential for them to get knocked off when wearing other badges at the same time.

The cost is low, There is still plenty of time before DEFCON to resolve any issues that might arise. I truly hope this is the first of many years of sharing badges with the community.
