Hackaday Podcast 063: Magnetic Gears, AI Green Screen, Plasma <3 Sharpie, And A Rubbery Drivetrain

Hackaday editors Mike Szczys and Elliot Williams sift for hacking gold from the past week. In this episode, we remember John Horton Conway’s Game of Life and its effect on novice programmers. We geek out adding screens to your car with an OBD-II hack, automating a Sharpie clicker as part of a plasma cutter, and 3D printing an incredible RC car that drives every wheel from a single motor. Plus we look at machine-learning for custom backgrounds in your video chats, take a gander at the coming generation of ePaper displays, and we get cultured about yeast.

  1. There are podcasts i listen to to have some background noise, there are some others I listen to that allow me to have have another part of my brain active during medial tasks.

    This is not the case for this podcast. There is so much information passed along that it warrants your full attention. And better yet, you can just follow along here with the links so nicely laid out on hackaday. I don’t typically make it through a lot of hackaday posts due to being busy but this podcast guides you through them at record speed. Thanks guys for such an engaging podcast, keep up the good work!
