Hackaday Podcast 050: Counterfeit Chips, Servo Kalimba, Resistor Colors, Pi Emulation, And SED Maze Solver

Hackaday editors Elliot Williams and Mike Szczys work their way through a dizzying maze of great hacks this week, bringing you along for the ride. We take a look at simplifying home automation with Node-RED and marvel at the misuse of the SED — Linux’s stream editor for filtering and transforming text — to find your way through a maze. Have the hippest portable; grab your really old Apple laptop and stuff a not-so-old Apple desktop inside. We bring it on home with our love (or hate?) for the resistor color code.

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. Just thought I would tell you that since episode 0 I have listened to every episode within 2 weeks of its release. In fact, I work from home on Fridays, and have made a tradition of listening to your Podcast with my adult daughter on Friday mornings. We enjoy listening to the hacks, but the banter of smart technical people helps us feel connected to a community that is much bigger than we had realized. We’re huge fans. Thanks for your work on this.
