power hack

Aside from it being an ugly hack, is there any reason I can't strip the wire back from the end of a printer power cable and solder it to the plug terminals of a 5v wall wart transformer? This shouldn't be a fire hazard since the power cord should be rated correctly, correct?

LNB Hacking?

I recently came across a spare LNBF in my shop.  This is basically what you attach to a dish to receive your satellite TV.  I read up on them and I have a fair idea of how they work.  I was going to use this in some experiments and I found that you have to power it through the same coax that you receive the signals from.  I want to use this for a radio telescope.  I was wondering if anyone knew how to do this?

packaging hack

My question is: how can I open a sealed toy package without damaging the package and in such a way that I may reassemble it after I’ve used the contents. Background: I am in the process of making a Super 8 film. One of my props are 3 Star Trek Borg action figures. I paid a pretty penny for them and only need to use them for a few scenes. When I am finished I want to put them back in the package and resell on eBay. Of course, I will give full disclosure to next buyer. The packaging is not true blister pack. It has a printed cardboard back with a molded plastic cover. I appears to be heat pressure sealed, probably with some sort of adhesive. I can provide digital pics when needed.

hacking a tablet

Hey everyone. I am shopping for a wacom tablet to use a stylus to ease photo editing, for which I use a macbook pro. there are google tablets and other off brand tablets that have interactive screens for less than the wacom tablets. so, how could I get one of these devices to essentially do what the wacom tablet does, with all the benefits of the tablet itself- to aid my digital photography? It seems that it would be advantageous to just make use of the tablet (weather it be an ipad google tab or coby tablet) so I can plug my 50 d into it to display photos to people, instead of carrying around an irreplaceable macbook pro. And when Im editing at home, using a stylus to edit on the pad like you would with the plastic no screen wacoms. it seems you could set up as many hotkeys as you would want on the screen and  have the benefit of working accurately inside the photo, too. if this is a feasible idea , please, tell me how to hack it! or make it work. maybe have something that other photogs would use , too... much respect to my community, Scott Scottedwards33@gmail.com

Hacking and Air Rights

Wondering how wifi data, hacking and air rights work in terms of law and wireless security. If data packets are entering my "air space" why are or aren't I allowed to do with them as I want? So long as packets aren't injected or intended to alter private APs, I assume my air rights on my property trump other laws. I'm proposing no laws are broken; using legal, open software and or writing your own code. I honestly don't care one way or the other, I'm just curious as to what others know, or their opinions on the matter. A Google search with hacking, air, rights, etc..... turns up more than what I care to sort through.

Stratasys hack, legal??

Hi , I  think of making an instructable about how to hack  3D printer cartridges, so they can easily be refilled with cheap material. I got an old Stratasys Dimension BST 3D printer from 2005 or something and these printers need chip protected filament cartridges to operate- and these cartridges are quite expensive (~200$ per kg filament...) There is a way to hack these cartridges using a small arduino based programmer to refill them with generic ABS and HIPS, each about 20$ per kg. So its 200$ vs. 20$ , and 15 minutes of work. And I would like to make a small instructable about how to do that. But I don`t know whether this is legal. My question: whats the policy of Instructables here? And if Stratasys starts legal action (I seriously doubt that, because the printers are out of production) who is liable, would that be me or Instructables?

Hacked Road Signs

This may be one of the greatest pranks I've heard of in a while.We see them everywhere these days, digital signs by the side of the road telling us about road conditions or that we should prepare to stop or that our local bridge might be closed next Tuesday from noon to midnight. And if you're like me, you've always just assumed that the message on the signs is legitimate and properly authorized.But what if the sign, instead of reading something like "Ice Ahead" was flashing the message, "Zombies Ahead"?It's true that in San Francisco or a few other cities, such a sign could be put up by local transportation officials to warn people of an impending zombie march, but even in those places, the more likely explanation would be that the sign was hacked.And if you're in the Boston area and saw signs hacked in this way, there's always a decent chance it was done by students from MIT.According to the blog i-hacked.com, some programmable road signs are easily messed with, largely because they often have unlocked instrument panels, a text-entry system that is easily accessed, and are often protected with uncomplicated, or unchanged default passwords. That's some of the text from an article on cnet, here. I love what the hackers did with the text. :-)

I Hacked a PSU

So I replaced the cheap power supply on my Compaq so I could upgrade my video card. Anyways I'm left over with this 200W PSU and I have no use for it. I opened it up and I see components galore and a 80 MM fan. There is also a bridge rectifier and, some really big transformers, and two giant blue capacitors @ 200v, 470uF. Do I have to remove the PCB to discharge the caps before I start salvaging or is there a better spot. The Chinese that made it also made use of a lot of white hot glue. And the soldering on the PCB just looks plain bad. You guys have any thoughts of what I could do with it? Besides the lab powersupply instructable?

Prepaid phone hacks?

Ok guys (and all you female hacks out there) I've got a question that I need help answering. Does anyone know if it would be possible to completely wipe a phones programming to be able to install an operating system on it ? The phone that I'm working with is a virgin mobile prepaid Super slice that got washed in the washing machine and is unable to be reactivated( trust me I've tried everything!) I would probably have to find a pretty darn small operating system, because I know that even damn small linux is too large and won't work. The phone is completely intact and all of the features work (including the camera ) it's just that I can't activate it so it's prety much useless unless I can turn it into some kind of micro-small-computer of some sorts. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. and just so you have a bit of info, the phone I believe has somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/4 of a megabyte of memory and an unknown amount of ram. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Laser Tag Hacking

I've been toying with this idea for a while, but I can't go anywhere with it until I get some programming experience (I'm taking a class on it next year, so I'll be able to do it then). I was thinking of this as a potential way to cheat at laser tag (or make it more interesting at least). get a microcontroller, a photoresistor, and plenty of cheap laser diodes with collimators, lenses, etc (a bunch of cheap laser pointers would work for this). use the photoresistor to have the microcontroller "learn" your laser's signal (so that you can get credit for your tagging), and then reproduces that signal at the press of a button. put all the lasers facing outward in a ball and presto, a laser tag grenade. just wondered if anyone could think of a good way to do this.

Hacking An Alarm Clock

My sister (yes, the one for whom I made earrings) wants me to modify an alarm clock to run a small electronic device when it goes off. Preliminary research has given me two methods:1) A digital clock with a 555 timer circuitIn this setup, a 555 timer circuit is used to translate the signal to an alarm speaker/piezo disk into a relay. When the clock goes off, the relay clicks, and any electrical device that is run through the relay has power.2) An analog clock with a transistor amplifierIn this version, the analog clock seems to just have a straight DC output to the alarm. The transistor is used to amplify the DC to drive the motor of a fire bell.Which of these would be easier to implement? The device I am supposed to use runs off of 3VDC, so I was just going to run the power line through the relay or through the transformer.

Hack my homepage?

Software security issues are often obvious to a second pair of eyes. I just posted the PHP scripts for my personal contact homepage as an instructable:Simple PHP personal contact homepage (web3.0!)Can you hack it? Preferably a copy on your local machine and not on my actual server... I deleted all my administration files and classes prior to making this post, just in case.I have two primary concerns:1. General PHP injection attacks. Proper handling and escaping of form data.2. The admin interface has a sessions based authentication mechanism. Login is compared to a MD5 hash of the password, then a session is created with an MD5 hash of the user's IP address. Each subsequent page load compares the authenticated session IP with the user's IP address (again, an MD5 of both). The goal is to prevent remote session stealing related flaws by tying the session to an (unknown...) IP address. Obviously if you have access to the local machine this is all moot, but there is little I can do about that. If an intruder were to get around the session authentication, they would be able to upload files just about anywhere on my server using the admin upload interface. This is a bit of a concern...I think in light of this, I'm going to add an option to limit the web admin interface to one IP address. My IP is fairly static, and if it changes, simply upload a new config file by ftp.

Disposable Camera Hack?

Hi, im building a capacitor bank for my coilgun, and I have 17 disposable camera capacitors in them. (wired in parallel (or whatever one means + is atached to +, and - is atached to -)) But for some reason wenever I start chrging it, after a little wile, it makes a huge spark across one  of the capacitors. That probobly means its arcing right? but its only 300 volts (there wired in parelell so only the amperage goes up, not the volts).  I then tryed to charge the caps to a point before they arced, wich took about 1 min (the battery is full) and my ammo only shot 3 inches! 17 capacitors, charging for 1 min, and it slid across the floor 3 inches! I have no idea what im doing wrong. Im using wire from a microwave motor  (wich is realy small) for the coil, and its 5 layers thick, wrapped around a hollowed out pen. So, to sum it all up, here are the main problems: 1) the caps arc when charging 2) the ammo only goes 3 @#%!ing INCHES!!!!!! arg! Ps, i heard someware, that if you have enought amps, it will arc even with lower voltages. Maby thats whats happening?

Hack a laptop battery?

Digital clock hack

I've been trying to do more DIY stuff recently, so I figured I would start out with an easy project. Basically, I was wondering if it is possible to modify a standard digital clock so it could display different messages through an lcd display based on the current time. Since most clocks have an alarm feature, I thought this would be pretty easy to do, but then again I could be completely wrong. I know how to solder and such, so I shouldn't have too many technical problems if I get a push in the right direction. Also, I know how to do a bit of coding, and I'm good at adapting so I'm sure I could find out some way to make this work. Any help is much appreciated.

Ikea hack with magnets

Hey guys!I just bought myself a Ikea PS laptop workstation. I thought it was heavy enough to stand on its own, turns out it isn't. I don't want to drill holes on the wall, I thought about using magnets to give balance to it.Questions are:- can I do that? I mean, magnets to hold a metal structure plus using that to hold electronics such as laptop, DS, camera, mobile etc.- in case I can, which sort of magnets should I buy? The open lid on the Ikea PS supports up to 25kg/55lb, plus 15kg/32lb from the PS itself. There will be support underneath to hold the weight (thought about using glass jars, grouping three on each side, totaling six), so the magnets will mostly add balance to the structure, and not hold its entire weight.Thanks a bunch for taking the time to read this! A good day to all.Cheers,Diogo Slov

Cheap calculator hack

I put together a Solarbiotics Magbot Pendulum and it has a period of one second. I measured this by using a stopwatch and counting the swings for five minutes. . What I would like to do is count the number of times it swings back and forth over an extended period of time, for example 24 hours.   I came across an article showing how to use a cheap calculator to count the number of turns a shaft makes. A cam attached to the shaft presses the "+" key each time the shaft turns one full turn. to use it, you clear the calculator and press the "1" button. Then every turn the cam presses the "+" button and 1 is added to the sum being displayed. Every cycle of the pendulum causes the LED to flash (pulse)  once. I'd like to use these pulses to do the electronic equivalent of pressing the "+" button.  It might be possible to count these pulses using electronic circuitry (decade counters) but electronic calculators only cost about a dollar of two and I'd like to give that a try. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Headphones Speakers hack

I've been thinking about this for quite a while now. Since I can remember, I always had problems when it comes to these, after a while, I always end up with the same problem, my speakers not working properly, its always the same, one speaker works fine, the other not so much, same happens with headphones, one side just stops working, and I have to jiggle with the jack to make it work. Of course after I end up buying a new set of speakers/headphones and that's it. I figured this happens because I plug in and out the heapdhones too many times, I use the speakers during the day, but at night I can't be loud so I swith to heapdhones, well, at least, this is my guess about the problem. This is what I was thinking about. I would need a way to have both heapdhones and speakers plugged in at the same time, and be able to switch between them at my please (by software or hardware). However I never even heard of an on off switch or anything like that. Does anyone have any kind of idea of how I could do this?
