Cool project from Samy Kamkar – check out more info on his blog here.
Combo Breaker is a motorized, battery powered, 3D printed, Arduino-based combination lock cracking device. It is portable, open source, 3D models provided, and exploits a new technique I’ve discovered for cracking combination locks in 8 attempts or less, but in an even more exciting, automated fashion.
Featured Adafruit Product!
Analog Feedback Servo: It looks like a servo, it acts like a servo, but it’s more than just a servo! We got a factory to custom-make these classic ‘standard’ sized hobby servos with a twist – the feedback (potentiometer wiper) line is brought out to a fourth white wire. You can read this wire with an analog input such as those on an Arduino, to get the servo’s position. That information can be used in robotics to improve stability or even allow ‘recording’ of servo motion. Read more.
