Hackaday Podcast 174: Breaking Into The Nest, Cheapest 3D Printer, A Spy In

Fresh from the holidays, Editor-in-Chief Elliott Williams has returned his winner to the Hackade Podcast! She joined managing editor Tom Nerdy this week, who is just happy she doesn’t have to do the whole thing by herself again. In this episode we’ll talk about how to deal with BGA components on your custom PCB, a specially implemented hack against Google’s Nest Hub, and why you probably don’t want the cheapest 3D printer in the world. We will also look at an incredible project to turn the Nokia 1680 into a Linux-powered handheld computer, with its first-of-its-kind HDMI firewall and a robot that is quite good at making tacos. Audiences with artificial intelligence will also get a pretty good treat, just like anyone who dreams of elevating the low-end automation option to a more prominent position in the hacker world.

However, it seems that no one has yet found the message hidden in last week’s podcast. What are you waiting for One of you has to be annoyed enough to give a shot.
