We also enjoyed when Karl and Corey were joined by James Lewis of Kemet Electronics to talk about capacitors.
Data exfiltration from a device is usually achieved over the network, via hardware implant, or by manipulating the characteristics of an internal electronic component. Optical covert channels transmit data using visible light in a method undetectable to the human eye.
Joe demonstrates using an optical receiver to capture data transmitted through a LED:

We’ve been trying fit in a tour of the Pacific Northwest for a couple of years now. This week is a perfect excuse. Hackaday is proud to sponsor the Open Hardware Summit which will be held in Portland this Friday! Hackaday believes in the free and open sharing of information and ideas. Open Hardware has…
Thanks to everyone that visited our booth. It’s wonderful to meet our customers in person and hear about their projects!
People enjoyed seeing our full PCB panels in person and learning more about the manufacturing process. We’ll also have them on display at our open house on Open Hardware Summit eve next week.
Low Voltage Labs had a bunch of fun easy-to-solder kits:
Mark Keppinger created this blinky board kit for people to learn to solder at the faire:
