Hackaday Links: Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Summertime means mowing the grass and now [Everst X] can do so in 7.1 channel delight thanks to his wireless headphone antenna hack which extends the range.

[Kevin] is trying to build a better reverse geocache box. It’s not the GPS that he’s improving, it’s the latching mechanism. He’s got four linear latches actuated by a single servo.

What’s a links post without some blinky lights? This week we take a look at [Daniel's] hack which connects the Ikea Dioder to a router.

It’s a pretty early prototype but we like where [Shae] is going with his spouse-friendly silent alarm. It’s a wristband you wear to bed that wakes with vibration rather than sound.

[Leland] wrote in to share his multi-console emulator. It’s built using a Raspberry Pi and he plans to fit everything inside an original Game Boy case.

Fans of the game Candy Crush may want to take a look at this hack for the iPhone version. It attacks the game by accessing the file system of a jailbroken device.

    you can also edit Candy crush for android by editing the APK file levels are stored at \assets\res\levels and then you edit just like iphone but then replace the original apk

    Summer, sweating inside of heavy cans. Ear sauna.
    There are an even number of drivers in those phones most likely 2, and you are listening to a mixdown of something. Provenance of source.
    Still a useful wireless monitor, how much latency with a live source?

    It’s a shame Everst X didn’t build an actual j-pole antenna, I’d imagine he’d have much better results than running two omni’s side by side like that.

    Deaf people have these already, but this is a new style I’ve never seen before.

    I don’t understand how you listen to 7.1 channel sound via only two channels.

    I don’t understand why you would add ftdi and arduino when both routers have gpio available on board. The router also has tty on board.
