Join Hackaday Editor-in-Chief Elliott Williams and Assignments Editor Christina Panos as we tour one of our best hacks since last week. Elliott has brought some fairly Nordy hire to the table this time, and as Christina Pine for physical media we’re discussing the death of the iPod Touch, the last fruit-flavored mp3-playing soldier to read.
But first, why not think of a 3D printing hack that uses vase mode in some structural way. We’ll take a look inside a C-through cyberdeck made from laptop parts, with amazing voltages that can be picked up with some fine meter designs and chew the fat of old rotary phones.
We also put in some overtime to discuss a cheap fix for an expensive time card watch part and rock out on a guitar that could use a variety of things for its resonant cavity. Finally, Elliott raises questions about the difference between software and firmware when it comes to hiding your dirty privacy, and Christina blows the whistle on praising electronics and music using whatever format you can afford.
