Hackaday Podcast Ep25: Of Cheese Graters, Fauxberries, Printed Gears, Power Latching, And Art-Loving AI

Hackaday Editors Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams dish their favorite hacks from the past week. Seems like everyone is trying to mill their own Mac Pro grille and we love seeing how they go about it. Elliot is gaga over a quintet of power latching circuits, Mike goes crazy for a dough sheeter project, and we dig through the news behind methane on Mars, the Raspberry Pi 4 release, and spoofing Presidential text alerts with SDR. If you like mini-keyboards you need to see the Fauxberry, Artificial Intelligence became an art critic this week, and poorly-lit rooms have been solved with a massive mirror system.

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!

And note: next week we’re taking a break to go outside and shoot off some 4th of July fireworks, so there will be no podcast and you’ve got some time to listen through our 24 previous episodes for anything you’ve missed.  You’ll hear from us again the week after.

  1. The soft switch circuit also works with an N-MOS if you can’t find a suitable P-MOS. Everything is just reversed, and you get a small DC offset between your battery ground and circuit ground – but that’s usually fine.
