  • DEF CON 21 contest: Pimp My Rascal

    The DEF CON 21 contest Pimp My Rascal invited attendees to modify "Rascal" electric driving carts, typically used by elderly and handicapped to increase mobility. The contest's funds went to the EFF; meanwhile, some hackers took pleasure in using the carts to navigate the conference's crowded halls and ease traveling the long casino distances between conference events and talks.

    Pleasure was also taken at annoying fellow conference goers with the dressed-up carts in general, most notably in absence of any statewide Rascal-related, indoor drunk driving laws.

  • DEF CON 21 vendor: EFF's CFAA phone booth

    The Electronic Frontier Foundation brought a full-size phone booth to DEF CON 21, complete with a Batman-style emergency red phone within, so attendees could easily call their political representatives and voice their support to change the Comupter Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA).

    EFF encourgaed hackers to "Call Congress at the CFAA DC Dialer Booth" in the DEF CON Contest & Event area, "so you can make a toll-free call to your representatives to speak out on Aaron's Law, the bill designed to bring some much needed reform to the CFAA."
