Editor-in-Chief Elliot Williams and Managing Editor Tom Nardi start this week’s episode off with the announcement of Hackaday Berlin on March 25th. It’s been quite some time since we’ve been on the other side of the pond, because we had to cancel 2020’s Hackaday Belgrade due to COVID-19, so excitement is high for all three days of this “one-day” event.
After a new What’s that Sound, discussion moves on to an impressive collection of DIY sundials, the impact filament color has on the strength of 3D printed parts, the incredible retrocomputer replicas of Michael Gardi, and the Arduino FPGA that you’ve probably never heard of. We’ll wrap things up with the unexpected difficulties of mixing multiple cheap audio sources in Linux, and try to figure out why our kitchen appliances need to be connected to the Internet.

What happened the results of last week’s what’s that sound?
Wow, you’re right — we did new sound last week, so this week we should have announced the winner. Standby, we’ll figure out best way to handle it.
Oh my god. Next week has two winners! :)
One of you almost said the copyrighted phrase…
My life is richer now that I heard that song.
Thanks for the link!
It’s an old expression, dating from the time of taxi dancers.
The Grateful Dead have “Truckin'” in one of their songs. Hot Tuna has a song, but I suspect it’s a cover.
Apparently it’s sex related.
It is, and they kept changing the word over time.
What do you think “Rock around the clock” really means?
And, if you want to make James Burke style connections here: Robert Crumb heard the song and drew the “Keep on truckin'” comic which became a sort of symbol and a slogan for hippy optimism, which he hated for various reasons, so he turned to drawing satirical shock content about and including sex, drugs, and Fritz The Cat – which in part inspired Furries.
So keep on hacking, baby. You never know where it’ll end up.
