Join Hackaday Editor-in-Chief Elliot Williams and Editor-in-Chief Tom Nardi on the best hacks and stories from the past week. There’s plenty in the news to talk about, but between faulty altimeters and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, it’s not exactly of the positive variety. But things quickly brighten up as the discussion moves on to 3D-printed car wheels, a fantastically complex 1958 drum machine, a unique take on the seven-segment flip display, and a carefully designed (and documented) coffee machine upgrade. Somewhere in there, a man also reconstructs a rare WWII German anti-aircraft missile launcher, but it’s all in the name of history. We will also tackle two very different forms of electric propulsion, from the massive wheeled batteries popping up in garages and driveways around the world to highly efficient thrusters for deep space missions.
