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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
