Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet & EC-155-0W Mouse Teardown and Reverse Engineer
In this incredibly thorough teardown and reverse engineer video, Micah Elizabeth Scott dissects some Wacom tech, notably this EC-155-x ‘Bamboo Fun’ mouse. Somewhat bewilderingly, the guts of the mouse are all 74xx logic ICs, not microcontroller-driven; check out the schematics here! There’s another video in this series – Graphics Tablet Primer for Hackers – that you’ll want to watch if you’re currently into graphics tablets or thinking about tearing one down for your own hackery needs.
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.
