This meetup will be a little different. As promised, we wanted to have a build it session for hardware hackers (with plenty of fun demo's and hands-on-stuff). In this presentation, we will talk about the mc1322x project. Mariano Alvira will: * Go over the history and motivation of the mc1322x project. * Provide a summary of community projects and available hardware. * Give an introduction to mc1322x-tests. * Give kickbutt demonstrations and cool gizmos to show and tell. Afterwards, we will have a small discussion about potential security risks and then continue drinking at a bar. Mariano is the Chief Engineer of Redwire, LLC, a prototyping and consultancy firm based in Boston, MA. His main hobbies and interests are _not_ disassembling Freescale libraries (although that was kind of fun), but actually include: machining, welding, circuits, and anything else related to the fabrication of things. He holds a B.S and M.Eng degrees from MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
