We love seeing the astonishing array of projects large and small entered into Hackaday contests which push the boundaries of what is possible. Our latest has been the Connected World contest which was announced back in June, and today we’re pleased to bring you its four top winners.
Hackster.io is hosting a BadgeLove meetup in San Francisco on Friday, October 18th:
Have you ever created a badge? Are you currently working on a badge? You are invited as a guest of honor to Hackster’s BadgeLove! Meetup. We want to take an evening to appreciate the hardware heroes who do the often thankless and frequently futile task of creating PCB artwork, shitty add-ons, and PCB badges.
Check out this entertaining talk by John McMaster from HDDG at Supplyframe SF: “Replicating a Secure Phone Key”:
For this month’s meetup, we’re going to be joined by John McMaster (@johndmcmaster). John is the Bay Area expert on decapsulating chips and disintegrating circuits.

Our new 2 layer “After Dark” service features black FR-4 substrate with clear soldermask to show off all those beautiful copper traces.
Our “After Dark” service is the same cost as our 2 layer purple PCBs: $5 per square inch, which includes three copies of your design. For example, a 2 square inch board would cost $10 and you’d get three copies of your board. You can order as many copies as you want, as long as they’re in multiples of three.
