Hackaday Podcast 207: Modular Furniture, Plastic Prosthetics, And Your Data On YouTube

Join Editor-in-Chief Elliot Williams and Managing Editor Tom Nardi as they explore the best and most interesting stories from the last week. The top story if of course the possibility that at least some of the unidentified flying objects the US Air Force valiantly shot down were in fact the work of amateur radio enthusiasts, but a quantitative comparison of NASA’s SLS mega-rocket to that of popular breakfast cereals is certainly worth a mention as well.

Afterwards the discussion will range from modular home furnishings to the possibility of using YouTube (or maybe VHS tapes) to backup your data and AI-generated Pong. Also up for debate are cheap CO2 monitors which may or may not be CO2 monitors, prosthetic limbs made from locally recycled plastic, and an answer to Jenny’s Linux audio challenge from earlier this month.

    1. And in my defense, the plywood had to be a really thin piece to have enough clearance for the faders to work, and cutting those slots is a non-trivial problem. I tried to plunge cut with a jigsaw, and that turned out as poorly as it could have. If I try it a second time, I think I’ll try a router with a side-cutting bit. Got quite a chuckle from the butterknife bit. =D
