Day 2 Hacking/Breaking an (Expensive) Printer
After wrecking the SquigglyBot, the team and I decided to do the next best thing: open up an expensive printer. One of our team members (Ashwin) had brought an old printer that he didn’t want anymore, so we were happy to dispose of it for him. Removing the external cover and casing of the printer was the most time-consuming and frustrating part, because more than half the screws were hidden. After we got the cover off, we worked on getting the scanner off of the top of the printer. Then we started stripping off the circuit boards and trying to disassemble the actual workings of the printers. That’s how far we got last time, and we haven’t got back to it yet.
