The Hardware Hacker: Adventures in Making and Breaking Hardware by Andrew Huang

Posted at — Jun 11, 2019

“In the beginning, all hardware was open.”

Even though a lot of technical details went flying over my head, I enjoyed the book. It’s a page-turner with juicy (and reflected upon) experiences in a wide range of topics united by a clear idea. Beautiful.

To give a few examples: in this book, there’s a custom-made laptop, arbitrary code execution on the microcontroller of a memory card, and delving into DNA with some grep and awk.

And there are big parts especially useful to a reader who’s considering to manufacture hardware in China.
