Hack the Gadget!


Playlists: 'mrmcd23' videos starting here / audio

For a bunch of years, I have collected lots of gadgets from every hacker's favourite online stores, and coined the term "root on arrival" at some point. Leaning against the good old "Hack All The Things: 20 Devices in 45 Minutes" talk by The Exploiteers, I present another series of devices to hack on: IP cameras, network video records, wireless storages, car media players, TV boxes, physical access control systems, lounge/room control panels, portable mobile network gateways - you name it. Because all of those are actually nice gadgets to have, besides just popping those boxes, I will go further and walk through a handful of nice projects leveraging existing products to put custom software on them.
