Hackaday Podcast Ep19: Extreme Clock Accuracy, Mobius Gears And Planetary Stunts, Jamming All Fobs, Pi In Your Wii

Join Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams as they riff on the coolest hacks from the past week. Clocks and 3D printing seem to keep coming up this week as we look at using an FPGA plus GPS receiver for better accuracy than we’re used to, and we haggle over what to call the robot arms that nudge the hands on a shelf-clock. There’s a wicked 3D-printed planetary gear design, and brackets that turn flat cardboard into boxes (more useful than you might think). We close out with great reads on the Supermicro fallout of the last 7 months, and a pretty big oops-moment as a hacker knocks out keyfobs for an entire neighborhood.

Take a look at the links below if you want to follow along, and as always, tell us what you think about this episode in the comments!

    1. Technically, he was grandfathered in: joined Hackaday before we had such strict requirements. (Kidding.)

      The more relevant question is how does he even survive without one? Is everything in his house made of cardboard, masking tape, and hot glue? The mind boggles.

  1. Not sure where the Episode 20 show notes are… but the “T” in ITO (as in ITO Glass — transparent electrode) stands for tin, not titanium.

    I love the podcast — great rapport between the two of you. More interviews (with a bit of a deeper dive into some technical topics) would be great.
