Hackaday Podcast 052: Shorting Components, Printing Typewriter Balls, Taking Minimal Time Lapse, And Building A Makerspace Movie Prop

Hackaday editors Elliot Williams and Mike Szczys recap a great week in hardware hacking.

Take a crash course in RF modulation types to use on your next project. Did you know the DB-9 connector is actually a DE-9? Building your own underwater ROV tether isn’t as simple as it sounds. And Elliot found a treasure trove of zero-ohm jumpers in chip packages — what the heck are these things for?

  1. I really like your podcast, which I listen to while on my way to work.
    What I would really appreciate: Include the shownotes in the feed metadata, so I can open the interesting links directly from within the player, instead of browsing to this overview site first.

    Another great improvement would be chaptermarks.

    Maybe the podlove project is something for you https://podlove.org/
