Well I was just throwing out information since I was confused to begin with. I guess that sounds more realistic, so then what does it mean when a person "hacks" a device to do other things it wasn't intended for? That would fall under the software aspect of it? Hmm..

I know it sounds a little too advanced for a beginner, but with a microcontroller, you can get some experience of success, which is very important while learning. I'd suggest learning about arduino, it's quite simple get a hang of it.

Either, but most likely hardware by changing a modulator for the voice's pitch.Neccross wrote:No, i really want to be able to build my own device. I just wasn't sure what i exactly I was looking for. Like for example, a teacher told me once he had this friend who took one of those tickle me elmos and made the voice change to some demon voice, i thought it was funny but I mean is this software or hardware?
Software, unless they are altering the hardware of a pda to add better wifi or something... that stuff is mostly seen in the movies and is very advanced in real life.I hear people who take already made devices, PDA, Ipod and mess around with it to make it better or to "customize it." Or like one of the articles on HTS that talks about "hacking" a psp to get emulators running on it, software or hardware based? I don't understand that either. It's mostly a personal thing for fun.
