DEFCON 2010 Badge : The Missing Man Page


Where's the information?

See: http://www.grandideastudio.com/portfolio/defcon-18-badge/ ( But it seems to refer to the 2009 badge currently Now updated.)

LCD datasheet: http://www.kentdisplays.com/services/resources/datasheets/25138B_128x32COG.pdf

Where's some photos of the different variations?

What's with the "Ninja Party" mode?

See: http://ninjas.org/badges/defcon_18_badge_ninja_mode.html

How do I make a serial connection?

The board has a FTDI USB to serial chip on it. Recent Linux OS should support it automatically. It will appear as something like /dev/ttyUSB0 on your machine.

To connect use this (then use Ctrl-A then \ to exit):

screen /dev/ttyUSB0 9600

Somehow I got a "Starting user application..." message but I'm not sure how.
