Linux Voice has a great article about how to reverse engineer a USB gadget and control it yourself. The article has a good overview of the USB protocol and lots of great practical advice about how to sniff USB packets to learn how a toy device works. If you’re looking for more information on how USB devices work, be sure to check out Ladyada’s guide on hacking the Kinect for more USB reverse engineering information!
