Hardware Hacking and Insensitive Stereotypes

In this week's episode, we talk about hacking hardware.  We are also given a view into Sean's insensitive cultural stereotypes, but it's cool, he's rigging a hardware hack as a cure!

We would like to thank @tinyKittensHQ, via @antwatkins, for sponsoring this week's show.  If you're looking for a daily dose of cute that you can take home with you, @tinyKittensHQ is the place for you.  And for total cuteness overload, try their livestream!

Remus Lupin's "boggart" in Harry Potter on YouTube - You might be wondering why we're including this in the show notes.  The reason is simple, there are an enormous array of amazing things that can be made.  Our imaginations are only the limit.  Harry Potter, to a real degree, shows this off.  If you can imagine it, you can possibly make it.

Someone go make me a shapeshifting monster!

For instance, someone made a real life transformer!

Or, how about a bunch of robots playing soccer? WITH ANNOUNCERS!
