Connecting a Raspberry Pi to IBM Watson, Bluemix and Node-RED IBM recently helped spark the Internet of Things enthusiasm into a bunch of developers by sending out Raspberry Pi 3 computers to developers who signed up for their Bluemix platform trial. I had been eager to give Bluemix and IBM Watson a try and figured this was as good a time as any to sign up! I was lucky enough to be one of the developers who received a Raspberry Pi 3 and so, I did what I always do with new emerging technology, I began tinkering and writing about my experience.

Reversing and Exploiting Embedded Devices: The Software Stack (Part 1) Over the course of the past few months I've been traveling around educating people on exploiting embedded devices. My slides alone aren't able to provide enough information, so I wanted to write everything out for people to digest online. The following blog post is "Part 1", which will introduce the reader to the software side of embedded devices. I decided to cover software first since most flaws reside within the software stack, ranging from binary applications to drivers.

Brushless DC (BLDC) motor with Arduino. Part 3 – The Stroboscope Project It has been all dry theory in the Brushless DC (BLDC) motor with Arduino series up to this point. This is where it gets to be more fun. If you’ve just arrived, please check out the previous two installments: In this final part of the trilogy I am describing the hardware part of the stroboscope project and the making of the zoetrope animations themselves, in hopes that my visitors can take this further and come up with their own animations, which I would absolutely love to see. More details below!
