Elliot Williams and Mike Szczys, editors of Hackaday, reviewed a week of hardware hacking activities. What a wonderful moment when you can use open source tools to decode signals from probes that have already left our solar system! We appreciate two very cheap constructions, one for measuring current consumption in the main power supply, and the other for milling small parts with high precision, for only a few dollars. A display composed of hundreds of 7-segment modules raises a question: Who says that pixels must have the same size? We are full of praise for the concept of an autonomous electric cargo ship and marvel at the challenge of hitting an asteroid with a space probe. All of this, we did not even mention the use of GLaDOS as a personal assistant robot, but this is also on the file!
