Setting up the place from 10pm
the previous night to 8am on Game Day
Yep, we got flygirls too !
(don't you wish you had gone now?? :D)
The place started getting busy...
...and so did the team registration counter...
...as you can see.
After registering, there was some time to kill...
...with the ever-present flygirls.
Porntiva Janchavee, the technical expert of Siamsecure, our Thai local partner...
...was interviewed by Thai national TV celebrity host Pongsuk Hiranprueck (left), along with Siamsecure marketing director Nuttapong Paungkaw (center).
Check out the giant TV display !
Some teams brought their equipment in shopping carts!
Check out the homemade parabolic (aka Wi-Fry) - too bad it won't work effectively because the feedhorn is not only an omni but also positioned at a less-than-optimal distance from the parabolic dish.
Some teams started doing a little pre-tourney homework...
Hacking tourneys are not just for young folk, you know?
The AIRRAID2 wireless hacking tournament introduction gets underway!
...which pleases the crowd.
The participating teams are revealed!
(not seen due to scrolling off the screen: Teams "Serenity" and "Team A" )
AIRRAID2 Co-Designer & GameMaster Julian Ho
Arranging the tables in the team tourney area.
Turnover of GameMaster's table from Team Registration
to Event Gameplay configuration.
Will sit anywhere for a slot.
"Stick Together Team!"
And now, the obligatory Team Photos!
(Our sincerest apologies if we didn't manage to take your photos during the game!)
Team: Air Sword
(The men in black)
(Kudos to scoring more than some other teams
who had more people!)
Team: Team A
(if they hadn't accidentally traded in their points and incurred
the 1000 point penalty, they would have won as they managed
to successfully complete the 2 highest scoring kamikazes!
Better luck next time guys :) )
(we consider these 4 the young guns)
(4 originally signed up, but only these 2 had the guts)
Team: Hack What?
(this team came with the home-made wi-fry; even if
it didn't work too well, this kind of creativity
bodes well for their future in the IT field)
(looks like a 70s' hacker group :) )
(the only mixed-gender team in the tournament)
(what's the yellow tape measure doing on the table?)
(if they had completed their last kamikaze just 5 minutes
earlier, they would have regained pole position
from Team Full Step and possibly won!)
Team: Full Step
(The eventual winners, scoring a vital Kamikaze
in the last 10 minutes to seal the deal!)
(the following stills/video were captured at various points during the gameplay...)
Host Pongsuk Hiranprueck and his team add
color commentary in Thai.
The usual suspects are all here - Kismet...
Team Black-Fish even used netstumbler!
At the 2-hour-mark, 3 teams were tied for the lead
Overhead views of the tournament...
Diallin' out for a pizza...
On a wing and a prayer
Team A trying a Kamikaze on for size...
...looks like they found a clue!
4 hours into the game and Team Inzecure has a commanding lead!
?? Did i get that right??
You better check that again, bro!
The crowd is still here, even after 4 hours!
Inzecure team member trying out a Kamikaze...
...with a cameraman breathing down his neck. Shoo, shoo, go away!
Now either they're trying to confuse other teams with fake SSIDs or they've got a drone network running.
We were told by our partner SIamsecure that this chap is the Head of the Thai Police Cybercrime Unit. Apparently, he got wind of our event and came to check it out.
I counted at least 5 plainclothes officers either around him, talking to him or talking to someone who talked to him so i guess they were really interested in what was going on :)
Doing a Bluetooth-related Kamikaze
Hitting the 20-minute-mark
When in doubt, RESEARCH!!
3rd Place goes to : Team Error404
2nd Place goes to : Team Inzecure
But the winner of AIRRAID2 is : Team Full Step!
