This list only has projects that are somehow important to me. To see all my projects in detail, pelase visit my blog
Hackaday is mentioned a lot here. So, to quote wikipedia: “Hackaday is a blog which publishes several articles each day about hardware and software hacks. A hack refers to modifications of a product or software as well as the creation of something entirely new for convenience, novelty, functional or creative reasons”
I needed a MIDI adapter I could build in an afternoon. Ended up reprogramming a AVR programmer, used to program ATmegas, to act as a MIDI adapter. This post was shared by Hackster and Hackaday.
Despite not having any experience with motherboard repairs, I decided to open my single computer to try and fix my dead USB ports. Everything went ok, although with some problems on the way.

How I got to do good PCBs with a CNC T8, one of the cheapest CNCs available.

I have translated the entire language reference of Arduino to Portuguese. I still keeping updating it to sync with the English Reference.
I also contribute to the English reference. In fact, I am a mantainer there too. The repository can be found on github.
One of the easiest ways to adpat a retro controller or joypad to usb is using v-usb. I realised that maybe I could use the USBASP, a cheap avr programmer to conect old hardware to usb. I also ported Raphaël Assénat’s 4nes4snes code to run on the usbasp, getting 4 snes controllers conected to one usbasp, then using a single USB port.

When you have a cheap component tester with a nice LCD screen, what do you do? Code the T Rex game from Chrome’s offline page, of course. The thing I like the most about this project was getting the game to run as fast as it could. I had to think a lot on how to tweak the functions not to waste cpu cycles.
You guessed it, Hackaday too.
Okay. If you read uo to here, you may have noticed that I just love retro video games hardware. I got to read or write EPROMS with an Arduino. This way I could run other games or homebrew software in my Super Nintendo.
Yes. I love weird hardware. The pocketstation was a tiny device that worked mainly as a memory card for the Playstation. However, it had a small lcd screen and could be used to play games or transfer saves to your friends. I managed to acces the data in the device, as well burn new games in it.
As seen on Hackaday.
Well, I got a Game Boy Camera and wanted the pictures in my computer. I cretaed a board to read or write Game Boy Cartridges and got to read the SRAM in the camera, backing up the pics in my computer.
My text was featured on Hackaday and some retro games related foruns and blogs.
This is when I got started in Hardware Hacking. Since I was a child, I had this Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge that did not work. When I found losts of memory chips (the BIOS) of old some old computers in the junk, I decided to burn all of the 4194304 bits into these chips, replaced the defective ROM with them and just play Sonic.

Well, I recycled the parts from the instructable above into a small printer. The picture is printed with a pen, with this instrucatbel I won three prizes from contests on Instructables.
Second prize in the 2014 Microcontroller Contest
Firt Prize in the 2014 Remix contest
Runner up in the 2014 Tech Contest
This is an Instructable where I taught people how to disassemble cd or dvd drives and suggested uses for the parts. This was actually before those micro CNCs with these steppers become common.
I won the second prize in the 2014 teach it contest with this instructable.
