"This book you are about to read was written by a true hacker, Joe Grand, and it speaks mostly to the class of hacks that address the need to adapt and improve on existing consumer solutions."
- From the Foreword by Andrew "bunnie" Huang, author of Hacking the Xbox: An Introduction to Reverse Engineering

This book has something for everyone---from the beginner hobbyist with no electronics or coding experience to the self-proclaimed "gadget geek." Take an ordinary piece of equipment and turn it into a personal work of art. Build upon an existing idea to create something better. Have fun while voiding your warranty!

Some of the hardware hacks in this book include:

  • Don't toss your iPod away when the battery dies!
    Don't pay Apple the $99 to replace it! Install a new iPod battery yourself without Apple's "help".
  • An Apple a day!
    Modify a standard Apple USB Mouse into a glowing UFO Mouse or build a FireWire terabyte hard drive and custom case.
  • Have you played Atari today?
    Create an arcade-style Atari 5200 paddle controller for your favorite retro videogames or transform the Atari 2600 joystick into one that can be used by left-handed players.
  • Modern game systems, too!
    Hack your PlayStation 2 to boot code from the memory card or modify your PlayStation 2 for homebrew game development.
  • Videophiles unite!
    Design, build, and configure your own Windows- or Linux-based Home Theater PC.
  • Ride the airwaves!
    Modify a wireless PCMCIA NIC to include an external antenna connector or load Linux onto your Access Point.
  • Stick it to The Man!
    Remove the proprietary barcode encoding from your CueCat and turn it into a regular barcode reader.
  • Hack your Palm!
    Upgrade the available RAM on your Palm m505 from 8MB to 16MB.

...Many more hacks and modifications inside!
