What kind of flag you mean?

What kind of action you mean?
Every time you believe that you are ready to force any device to make something unnormal - ask judge to see and check.

Can we share answers?
Absolutely not! Any sharing or trading of answers will disqualify all teams involved.
Trading flags or asking other teams for help is completely against the nature of the event, and ruins the fun for everyone.

Teams who come in costume related to (entire teams) will receive a bonus 200 points, and will likely get more spot prizes and have more fun!

Are there any sample challenges we can look at?
No. Read about IoT and brake you own home network or TV :)
