Episode 27: Interactive Experiences with the Tymkrs

Addie and Whiskr (the Tymkrs)are a couple of amazingly creative people who make the wicked awesome interactive badges at CypherCon. Tune in to get a whiff of what the CypherCon 5.0 Badge smells like. We discuss the inspiration behind prior badges, what it was like to do the DEFCON badges, and how they design the badges for interactive experiences. Addie talks about how she created a device to teach folks about the heart rhythms. When Goetzman discovered the device, he contacted them and asked if they could make a badge for CypherCon 1.0 and the rest is history. We discuss the A511C phone company and if you want to see that get connected to the internet, please check out their project and donate to their patreon.
