    1. mike- sorry to ask this of you but don’t know your email – do you have the schematic of the 2 transistor/arduino project that you created to drive a kawasaki tach? thank you.

  1. No idea what it means but I’m glad you-tube allows for playing back at slower speeds as I wasn’t going to get all three otherwise (oh and the rest of the video was a bit cryptic but I’m guessing that’s about another competition)

  2. 4185? you guys suck (in a good way). Last time you did something like this it ruined a good part of a weekend. Well, at least I got a badge out of it. One question, why did you send it on Monday, I have to work.

  3. Assuming this is some form of puzzle…

    There are 4 numbers at the end of the video (bottom right, approx 0:44) which reads: 4185. A quick google of 4185 didn’t return much of interest except for an asteroid (4185 Phystech, discovered 1975).

    However, searching ‘Apollo 11 4185’ (the guy in the suit has an Apollo 11 badge), gives a link to a NASA website looking at the Apollo 11 landing site (http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=4185).

    Don’t know what the title (02,02) means.

    In the url of this post has the number 1407981609 which might link to the ‘one time use pad’ on the hackaday store. (http://store.hackaday.com/products/1407981609)

    Clues? or thoughts of a mad man … not sure … hopefully someone else knows more! :)

    1. For some reason I only see “5” at that point in the video.

      The 02,02 may also refer back to Hackaday “Transmission #2” from April 8 2014. The redundant “02” may follow the “All good things repeat repeat” theme.

      I am wondering now if binary data is encrypted / hidden in the static within, or at the end of the video.

  4. Ahhh, had to do this the day I start university! With reluctance I’m going to have to let others play along to whatever ARG they’re running this year. Good luck all, and I can’t wait to read how it went. Everyone, I remember how fun it was collaberating on the last puzzle, so why not joing ##hackaday and see how quickly you can solve it!

  5. I think there is some data in the audio, if you listen closely, it does not truly repeat, Also the Static is not the same throughout the clip. I don’t have the tools here to do much more digging.

      1. What does this mean for you? Build something using readily available technology, tools, and manufacturing processes. Show how others can leverage your creation to solve problems that matter and you, your team, or your company can earn the Hackaday Prize.
