Alexa, Put the Kettle On!

Make a smart kettle for under £60 using Alexa and Arduino. Introduction Why make two trips to the kitchen, or hang around waiting for the kettle to boil when you can just ask Alexa to put the kettle on? This project uses as few components as possible and is really easy to follow but it does involve tinkering with mains powered devices and water. So be careful and always make sure the kettle is unplugged whe ...

Review: ScanaQuad – a super-small logic analyzer

If you are mainly involved in designing or repairing digital devices, a logic analyzer is more useful than an oscilloscope for tracing signal through circuits. However, does this mean you should rush out and buy a logic analyzer? The instruments from the leading manufacturers are too expensive for home use or startup businesses, and the low-cost alternatives don’t do what you want or have half-baked softwar ...

HID Attack Over WiFi Using Arduino MKR1000

Arduino MKR1000 as a HID, for performing HID penetration testing over WiFi networks. Story Today I have an Arduino MKR1000 which is a board with built-in wifi chipset specially designed for IOT projects. Recently I came to know that, this little board can act as a Human Interface Device such as a keyboard or a mouse. So I thought of using it for some HID attacks over WiFi. In this video, I will show you a s ...

Aeroscope – a wireless oscilloscope

A pair of former engineers from Agilent (now Keysight) Technologies are working on an oscilloscope that will connect to an iOS device for its user interface. The Aeroscope, conceived by Alexander Lee and Jonathan Ward, looks like the kind of device that you'd use on home projects or in field locations. I recently spoke with Lee about the design. At this time, Lee expects to ship in the fall of 2016. The Aer ...

IoT IP camera teardown and getting root password

This post will describe how I inspected the IP traffic of a cheap pan/tilt IP camera. Then continued to open the camera up, connect to the serial console of the SoC; extracted the root password and logged in via telnet over the wireless interface. My goal was to have a look at the security of these very cheap IoT devices, and see how they could be improved. Let’s have a look at our victim: I present to you ...

SK6812 – a new intelligent RGB LED

During the last months, a new WS2812 alternative appeared on the market: The SK6812. I finally managed to get my hands on some of them to take a closer look. In most aspects these devices are basically clones of the WS2812. What is interesting however, is that the manufacturer came up with a couple of new variations of the stock 5050 RGB LED. As with many components from mainland china, it seems very diffic ...

ESP32 With Arduino IDE

Christmas 2015 yours truly was one of the lucky few in the world to receive the ESP32 for experimenting. The board was not assembled, and it was quite intimidating to assemble the board with just a fine tip solder. The experiment is documented at this URL: https://www.instructables.com/id/Beginners-ESP32-Gu... This afternoon, yours truly came across the Arduino Core for ESP32 on github URL here: https://git ...
