#THOTCON 0×4 Badge Hacking Contest Results

The cornerstone of the THOTCON 0×4 design was to create a platform for a variety of electronics and radio projects.  We’d like to showcase projects people have centered around this year’s AVR based PCB.  The winning entry to our contest is called badgesniff and comes from Mike Ryan (@justfalter). Mike’s work is a powerful use of the radio on the badge.  Not only did Mike create a custom firmware for sniffing the 802.15.4 spectrum via the badge but also a client application for saving the data to pcap files and  instructions for setting up the environment on Ubuntu!

Below is a video demonstration of his work:

The project can be cloned from git by this URI:

Kudos to Mike for creating such a useful tool with great documentation and instructions.  His submission certainly surpassed our expectations.

We’d like to thank everyone who has taken the time to explore the badge for THOTCON 0×4.  If you have a project you couldn’t submit before the deadline last week we’d like to post your work here and archive
