Hacky Xmas!

How we hacked our clients' computers in the name of seasons greetings.

Ok, so we’re more than a bit late in writing about this, but better late than never! (Much like that thank you card you’re yet to write to your aunt for the socks.)

Last December, to wish our clients a happy christmas, we created an Arduino powered card that hacked their computers. Don’t worry, we didn’t steal anyone’s bank password. Instead our card sang them a little ditty then invited them to play Hacky Xmas and help Santa Claus chop down a Christmas tree. The highest scores won a fetching lumberjack hat and that traditional woodsman’s tipple, a bottle of champagne.
