Citizen Engineer volume 01 video transcript now available


In our continual effort to provide text transcripts for our videos at Adafruit we’re pleased to release the text transcript for Citizen Engineer volume 01 – SIM Card and Payphone hacking. Learn how a SIM card works (the small card inside GSM cell phones), make a SIM card reader, view deleted messages, phone book entries and clone/crack a SIM card. Then, modify a retired payphone so it can be used as a home telephone and for VoIP (Skype). Then learn how to modify the hacked payphone so it accepts quarters – and lastly, use a Redbox to make “free” phone calls from the modified coin-accepting payphone. Length: 30 minutes. The text transcript and video can be viewed here.

…And an update for Citizen Engineer fans, our “Open source DIY non-lethal LED weaponry” was what we were calling Citizen Engineer volume 02, but – we decided to release it without that title. Why? Late this year (2009) a book by David Douglas, Greg Papadopoulos and John Boutelle called “Citizen Engineer, A handbook for socially responsible engineering” was released. It’s a good book and you should check it out. We figured those guys would be promoting their book and this was our way of helping them out, so we just made our video non-Citizen Engineery. In 2010 we’ll resume our video series, comic book and coloring book.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
