2016 – Steve Lord – Building your own hardware for hardware hacking

You might have a raspberry pi. You may even have a BeagleBone Black. If you’re lucky, you might have a TP-Link WR-703N or some other toys to play with. But wait.You might have a raspberry pi. You may even have a BeagleBone Black. If you’re lucky, you might have a TP-Link WR-703N or some other toys to play with.

But wait.

Have you ever considered building your own toys? From scratch? Crazy, no? As a firm believer in crazy, I’m going to do something different. I’m going to build you a hackety-hack platform using nothing but cheap parts from a supplier on the other side of the world. I’m going to talk about my design choices and processes. Then I’m going to do it on stage. I’m going to do it in real time, and I’m going to show you how to do it so you can build your own. It’s nothing particularly special, but at the end of this talk you’ll know that there’s nothing special about hardware hacking, and that if I can build it live on stage while talking about it, you can do it at home too.
