The Organising Committee for the Annual International Conference on Practical Cyber Security OFFZONE presented interactive badges for visitors and participants of the conference.
The badge is a printed circuit board made in the form of a 3.5″ floppy disk. In the basic version there are LEDs and an interface for transferring money that allows you to store virtual conference currency — OFFCOINS. They can be earned by completing tasks in various zones and then exchanged for prizes and merchandise OFFZONE.
Each badge holder will be able to add new items to it in the soldering area of Craft.Zone. Beginners will learn how to solder, and pros will be able to equip their badges with an OLED screen, IR and RFID receivers, as well as a radio transceiver (433 MHz). Additional elements open up new tasks and earn you more virtual currency.
The conference will also include theme areas run by security experts from major financial institutions (Finance.Zone), experts on web application security analysis (AppSec.Zone) and hardware and electronics researchers (Hardware.Zone).
OFFZONE visitors can relax and unwind in the game zone (Game.Zone), where they could participate in cybersport tournaments; the braves may venture to Tattoo.Zone, where they can get inked up in cool tattoos.
