USB driver hacking

[qDot] sent in his efforts to hack the oddest USB interface I’ve seen. The game is played by relaxing, so the controller senses biometrics. His notes on his adventure in hacking a driver are a bit entertaining, and definitely interesting if you’ve considered doing a little USB driver hacking of your own. If there’s enough interest, maybe he’ll post some more code to get things rolling.


  1. YOu know…. you could turn this into a lie detector as well, if only you know how, as i dont, if anyone figures it out, let me know i think that would be real cool.

    I love this kind of hacking. I wish there were more avr and driver hacks. Going to do some of this myself.

    You know…. you could turn this into a TIME MACHINE as well, if only you know how, as i dont, if anyone figures it out, let me know i think that would be real cool.

    @Phil: All you need to do aside from his program is graph it over time. Lie Detectors only graft differences read from the sensors, the test giver decides if its a lie or not.

    I think the tile is misleading. This gentleman didn’t do any USB *driver* hacking. Download the zipped source code and it will be evident.

    You know bais, comments like that are miller (read, not needed).

    On topic, i’ve only ever done a little usb driver hacking, all in inf files, just small things like changing the company name when its plugged into to show as something else, the same sort of thing an OEM device has done, and of course the changing device type for soft modding an xbox. I’ll have to look into open source drivers now.

    actually bias’ comment was pretty funny

    What this hack could have been (after a few minutes with a search engine):


    (w/ oxygen level)


    Or just go to a thrift-store that sells old exercycles/treadmills.

    No foul-mouthed, hacker-wannabe, mac luser’s required.

    yea, the language is a bit overboard.

    “Lightstone External hand fucking written because the people that made the lightstone are fucking idiots who love pissing on standards. Serial is NOT supposed to go through the HID layer, you bastards!”

  10. Right, the first thing I came to think of was a low cost lie detector. Perfect for private use I suppose :)
