Hackaday Podcast 192: Supercon Was Awesome, How To Grind ICs And Make Your Own Telescope

This week, Editor-in-Chief Elliot Williams and Managing Editor Tom Nardi are still flying high on their post-Supercon buzz (and are a bit jet lagged) this week. We’ll start with some of the highlights from our long-awaited Pasadena meetup, and talk a bit about the winner of this year’s Hackaday Prize. Talk will then shift over to shaved down NES chips, radioactive Dungeons and Dragons gameplay, an impressive 3D printed telescope being developed by the community, and the end of the Slingbox. Stick around for a double dose of Dan Maloney, as we go over his twin treatises on dosimetry and the search for extraterrestrial life.

  1. Hi Tom & Elliott,

    What about those extra photos that Jelle Seegers emailed regarding the solar smelter? It looks like you haven’t had a chance to add them to the story yet. I’m wondering if you might be able to do that, and/or get some more detail regarding the custom fresnels into the article (or as a followup).
