Recently I subscribed to MAKEzine and it has reinvigorated my interest if hardware hacking.
Which is good, as I’m doing a talk at SkillsMatter in December on that very subject.
Since I won an iPhone in a raffle last month I now have a surplus ipaq that used to be my portable brain, randomly I came across this site on running Linux on ipaqs. So this maybe the way to go.
However this guy also made some really cool bots running windows C++ code. I think certainly with an ipaq as the brains plus computer junk from the loft I probably have the kit for some interesting junkbots.
