Household Hacker

There's a man on Youtube who is trying to convince everyone that you can do some ridiculous technological feats. His username is Household Hacker, and he has nearly 3 million views on just one video.

*run a TV off of a AAA battery,
*intercept cell phone calls with a universal remote
*charge an ipod using only an onion and gatorade
*make a hi-fi speaker out of a penny, a paper plate, and a sheet of tinfoil

Although many of us realize that this is fake, a lot of people think it's true.


I'm sure some of you will find it funny, while others won't. I'm still trying to figure out which side I'm on with this.

When I made this, 4 years ago, the descriptions were different, and he made no admission of how they were fake.

Always reminds me of the X-Files subtitles, when I read and hear about those kinds of sites:

 "I want to believe."

"The truth is out there!"..

As for anyone actually hurting themselves from attempting some of the more ludicrous scams ~ well that's just Darwinism at work, isn't it?

It's not fake. I've successfully completed all of these projects, and a few others. I thought they were fake at first, but once you get it right, it'll blow your mind. My fave and the easiest one (in my opinion) is the home-made airhorn.

Obviously you haven't, or you're a troll.

I'm thinking it's the latter.

Some of the more recent projects are legit, (like maybe the airhorn one), but his early videos are all fake. I would love to see you try the "cell-phone interceptor" or any of the projects I listed in the topic. He acquired Youtube fame by lying to people.
As a matter of fact, I did make the cell phone interceptor, power a TV with AAA battery, and made the speaker. If you can't do it, you did something wrong. It took me 2 tries to get the cell phone interceptor right. It's hard, but it easier using simpler parts and a bit of clean up.
