Super Mario Kart Turnier

Auf dem Waldeck Freakquenz 20. August 2016 planen wir nicht wie die letzten fünf Jahre ein Tetris-Turnier, sondern probieren mal was Neues.

Hier geht’s zur Voranmeldung!


Hey, we finally edited some of the GoPro material we filmed on our festival, Waldeck Freakquenz.

See our retro gaming café, our Kinect sandbox, bands, enthusiastic Tetris chanting and further awesomeness.


Same procedure as every year. Our annual 2015 Tetris contest was a bit chaotic this time: Few players, unrecorded games, winners vanishing and so on. But fun nonetheless. And I won 2nd place. Whoo!

Here are the highlights. Enjoy!

Playing Borderlands 2

Pantra played Borderlands 2 with us for the very first time. Fun! 🙂 German audio.

At the notorious Waldeck Freakquenz Festival  in Germany, a Tetris Contest takes place each year. For the first time we set up a stream on where people could comment games live. It was a blast and we are proud to present this year’s highlights!


Abalakin by Alexander Preuss

More old bookmark material! I don’t remember how I came across these stunning visuals by German artist Alexander Preuss, but I’d like to share this.

Have a look at his gallery for more mouth-wide-open sci fi visuals and concept art. I really like futuristic city scapes and huge structures in space.

Here are just a few talks I went to and found memorable. Have a look at the other talks here. This one in particluar was nicely delivered and funny in a creepy way. I’d say all of the people giving lectures at CCC have mastered the art of “delivering bad news in a good way”.

RFID Treehouse of Horror -Hacking City-Wide Access Control Systems

In this lecture, we present a black-box analysis of an electronic contact-less system that has been steadily replacing a conventional mechanical key on multi-party houses in a big European city. So far, there are est. 10.000 installations of the electronic system. The mechanical key has been introduced about 40 years ago to allow mail delivery services to access multi-party houses but has since then aggregated many additional users, such as garbage collection, police, fire brigade and other emergency services. Over 92% of residential buildings in this city are equipped with such a solution.

I leave you with the visuals for now. Text will follow.

We’re finally going to attend the Chaos Computer Clubs’s 30th anniversary congress. We wanted to go last year, but the universe had other plans. Now we are very excited to get a lot of fascinating input this year. We’ll update you on talks and such as much as we can. Stay tuned!

Trant and Eddy, who is a moderator at the infamous video game show Game One, star in a brand new cooking show “Baking Bad”. Milchschnitte  is a German spongey sweet with cream enclosed by to chocolate cakes. Its texture is not unlike a Twinkie.

Anyway, these two rascals decided to “bake” a cake out of Milchschnitte, and since they are also international star cooks, they moderate in “English”. Well, if you want to see two German nerds baking something (anything but the pie), you can watch it here. Milchschnitten Torte estimated calories: Over 9000!

Thias described it: “It’s like a car accident in slow motion!” Be warned, there are three parts… And you’d probably die if you ate it.

PS. Do you know I once got stuck there for over an hour..
