On his blog, cmw just posted details (and pictures) of yet another awesome BUG-related hack. After building the first homebrew BUGmodule and following up by porting Quake to the BUG, cmw shows us his latest invention - a little level-shifting thingamajigeroo that interfaces two serial devices. In this case, a BUGbase and a Nokia N810.
"Since most embedded hardware has a serial port (typically hidden in an obscure place) I decided to build a device that would allow me to attach to these embedded machines with limited to no effort ... I used some micro wire from an iPhone headset and cut up a simple small connector to use. After enabling serial using 0xFFFF it works perfectly."
Head on over to cmw's post to read more about how he MacGuyvered the whole setup.
