Hello Adafruit! Brent guest blogging @adafruit

brentHi, I’m Brent and I’m a researcher at the Army Cyber Institute at West Point.  I also teach in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.  I started in the military as a cryptanalyst until I was offered an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy as a cadet.  In addition to studying electrical engineering and computer science at West Point, I participated in student hacking and tinkering clubs and spent my summers using my MacGyver skills while interning at various government agencies.  After graduation, I joined the Army’s communication branch, the Signal Corps, as a Second Lieutenant.  Recently, the Army introduced a new branch, Cyber, and I am thrilled to be among the first few Cyber Officers selected.

When not in uniform, I spend my time in my wood shop making stuff big and small, or out photographing the world.  I also spend a lot of time attending awesome events like Maker Faire and various security conferences.  I have a passion for technology education and I love tinkering with (breaking) gadgets.  I usually post the evidence on my site http://www.brentmorelabs.com.

I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences as a military technologist & maker.


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.
