For over a decade, Andrew "bunnie" Huang, one of the world's most esteemed hackers, has shaped the fields of hacking and hardware, from his cult-classic book Hacking the Xbox to the open-source laptop Novena and his mentorship of various hardware startups and developers. In The Hardware Hacker, Huang shares his experiences in manufacturing and open hardware, creating an illuminating and compelling career retrospective. Huang’s journey starts with his first visit to the staggering electronics markets in Shenzhen, with booths overflowing with capacitors, memory chips, voltmeters, and possibility. He shares how he navigated the overwhelming world of Chinese factories to bring chumby, Novena, and Chibitronics to life, covering everything from creating a Bill of Materials to choosing the factory to best fit his needs. Through this collection of personal essays and interviews on topics ranging from the legality of reverse engineering to a comparison of intellectual property practices between China and the United States, bunnie weaves engineering, law, and society into the tapestry of open hardware. With highly detailed passages on the ins and outs of manufacturing and a comprehensive take on the issues associated with open source hardware, The Hardware Hacker is an invaluable resource for aspiring hackers and makers.

You’ve mastered the basics, conquered the soldering iron, and programmed a robot or two; now you’ve got a set of skills and tools to take your Arduino exploits further. But what do you do once you’ve exhausted your to-build list? Arduino Playground will show you how to keep your hardware hands busy with a variety of intermediate builds, both practical and just-for-fun. Advance your engineering and electronics know-how as you work your way through these 10 complex projects: *A reaction-time game that leverages the Arduino’s real-time capabilities *A tool for etching your own printed circuit boards *A regulated, variable-voltage power supply *A kinetic wristwatch winder decked out with LEDs *A garage parking assistant that blinks when your vehicle is perfectly parked *A practical and colorful pH meter *A ballistic chronograph that can measure the muzzle velocity of BB, *Airsoft, and pellet guns *A battery saver that prevents accidental discharge *A square-wave generator *A thermometer that tells the temperature using a sequence of colored LEDs Each project begins with a list of required tools and components, followed by the instructions, full sketch, and circuit board templates for the build, as well as directions for building a permanent enclosure. You’ll even find the author’s design notes, which are sure to provide inspiration for your own inventions. Gather your parts, break out the soldering iron, and get ready to take your Arduino skills to the next level with Arduino Playground. Uses the Arduino Nano and Pro Mini boards

Venture into a new clinical office where an agoraphobic can manipulate a projected image of himself into an actual crowd, where a woman afraid of flying can desensitize herself through virtual reality exposure, where an ill-socialized adolescent or a depressed elderly patient can visit a virtual community. Dr Jeri Fink introduces the brave new world of psychotechnology with a mix of imagination, enthusiasm and authority. She logs on by exploring computer assisted therapeutic interventions for treating individuals and groups based on accepted theories of practice; next, she raises and answers questions about such pivotal attendant issues as the rise of Internet Addiction Disorder and the implications of cybertherapies for managed care; and finally, she supplies a resource guide to the Internet as a channel for professional communications as well as for professional reference.

Despite the book's frankly sensational title, Meinel does not condone destructive hacking, but has produced this book for mainstream computer programmers to use as a tool to prevent unwanted entry into their systems. This does not preclude her use of the creative, informal writing style replete with personal anecdotes, in this instance, the many and varied instances of hacking experienced by the Happy Hacker group to which she belongs. c.
