Making a teddy display the computer's state
Released on: 2014-03-21

Today I'm joined by my co-host Tim to discuss the risks and basics of making a teddy bear communicate what a computer is doing. This episode has serious risks. As always, please take note and take responsibility for them.

We actually recorded this in 2010. There's a few more episodes from that era that will make their way out to the internets over the coming weeks/months.

The biggest risk is fire. I play a clip of smoke a few times through this episode to really hit home that it is easy to stuff this up. But once you get it right and are confident that it is safe, it's a really cool hack.

This seemed far too appropriate not to put in at the bottom
