Hackaday Podcast 053: 1-Bit Computer Is A Family Affair, This Displays Is Actually Fabulous, And This Hoverboard Is A Drill Press

Hackaday editors Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams navigate the crowded streets of the hackersphere for the most interesting hardware projects seen in the past week. Forget flip-dot displays, you need to build yourself a sequin display that uses a robot finger and sequin-covered fabric to send a message. You can do a lot (and learn a lot) with a 1-bit computer called the WDR-1. It’s never been easier to turn a USB port into an embedded systems dev kit by using these FTDI and Bluepill tricks. And there’s a Soyuz hardware teardown you don’t want to miss.

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. I picked this nickname back in 1994 when I needed login for mIRC:

    Dirtyjtag came from the frustration of not having versaloon firmware not working.

    There is also another japanese firmware named armblaster, I finally got an STBee board from a friend in Japan, it needs to be adapted to the bluepill, and it supports OpenOCD as well:

    What is also needed is to modify OpenOCD so use libgpiod since linux v4.8, right night it only supports the Rpi gpios.
