HackBusting: Can you Fake a TV Remote with a Lighter and some Paper?
Hackaday.com [REMOTE]

The paper had a barcode like cutout for a supposed "Universal Standby Signal". The video rightfully attracted a substantial crowd, some awestruck by its simplicity, others sceptical about its claims. Coming from some generic "Viral Life Hack" production house, the characteristic blare of background music, more suited to an undergroun [...]

Shape Programmable Matter is More Magnetic Magic
Hackaday.com [PROGRAMMABLE]
How could you build an artificial tadpole? Or simulate the motion of a cilium? Those would be hard to do with mechanical means - even micromechanical because of their fluid motion. Researchers have been studying shape-programmable matter: materials that can change shape based on something like heat or magnetic field. However, most research in this area has relied on human intuition and trial and error to get the programmed shape correct. They also are frequently not very fast to change shape. [M [...]

A 6502 Retrocomputer In A Very Tidy Package
Hackaday.com [RETROCOMPUTER]
One of the designers whose work we see constantly in the world of retrocomputing is [Grant Searle], whose work on minimal chip count microcomputers has spawned a host of implementations across several processor families. Often a retrocomputer is by necessity quite large, as an inevitable consequence of having integrated circuits in the period-correct dual-in-line packages with 0.1 spaced pins. Back in the day there were few micros whose PCBs were smaller than a Eurocard (100 mm x 160 mm, 4 x 6.3 [...]
