My robot won't get hacked!

Simply out of interest, and for security at PiWars (and other maker venues), I have been working on a security feature for Lobsang. The Pi in Lobsang skips standard login (so the python programs can be run immediately and automatically on booting) so the system is not secure. My solution was inspired by a feature of the Scout robots in CHAPPiE- in the film there is a special USB chip that allows the robot's software to be updated, and without this USB 'key' you cannot 'unlock' and access the robots.

FezBridge - Android Debug Mode meets Fez Domino

FezBridge is an Implementation of the Android Debug Bridge (ADB)  on a .NETMF device, the Fez Domino from GHI electronics. It is based on the MicroBridge project from Inopia alias Romfont. The ADB is available on most Android phones (Andropid v1.6 or higher). This is one of the advantages against the Android Open Accessory mode. which runs only on a few phones.

Note: You can follow some projects some of the time, but you cannot follow all the projects all the time.
