Tag Archives: DEFCON



This year’s DEF CON was fun as usual. Exhausting, but quite fun. I hope those that caught the Con-Flu have a quick and speedy recovery! Thanks for all that stopped by as we had many great conversations and sold a bunch of gear.

I have a ton of takeaways of how to improve the booth for next year. For those that were frustrated with the crowds and being able to see everything – we heard you loud and clear and I’ll figure out how to massively improve.


Online orders are being fulfilled and we have nearly caught up on the queue. A few items went fully out of stock and we have shipping availability notes on the product pages that have some lead time.


The Hacker Warehouse crew had a great and fun time at DEFCON 22. This was our second year being a vendor at DEFCON and we expanded to two tables as well as the onsite product selection to include Parallax gear for badge hacking, faraday bags for forensics purposes and Gunnar glasses. We are constantly evaluating what products to bring to support the audience the best, so if you have suggestions on what to bring next year, please drop us a line on our contact page.

Jim getting ready for the crowds. Somehow we had extra table space before the area was open.


Once the doors opened we ended up with more products to fill up every space on the table!


These two guys hacked up their badge to be a portable communication device over xbee. Other components were an xbox keyboard and lcd screen. They mentioned that they could communication with each other regardless of where they were in the DEFCON spaces! Awesome work guys.


Closing note: Thanks to everyone that supported us. From Jim, Jaime, Peter and Charles to the NoVA Hackers to the Goons to everyone that stopped by and interacted with us. It was a great time and we hope to see you soon. Cheers.



We had a ton of fun at DEFCON this year and thanks to everyone that stopped by! We had a couple unique items at our booth as Jared Boone from ShareBrained Technology brought his HackRF and  vacuum fluorescent display demo kit and Joe Grand from Grand Idea Studio brought his new JTAGulator devices.

For those that aren’t familiar with the HackRF, it is an open source hardware project to build a Software Defined Radio (SDR) peripheral capable of transmitting or receiving a radio signal from 30 MHz to 6000 MHz. It is currently on Kickstarter so please support the project if you are interested in that type of thing.

The JTAGulator is an open source hardware tool that assists in identifying on chip debug connections from test points, vias, or component pads on a target device. We will be selling these once then next batch is made so stay tuned for those!

Lastly, we are excited to have several new business partnerships established since DEFCON so stay tuned for new hacking goodies Smile
