Challenges

Do something new. Test yourself. Improve your portfolio. Have fun.

Take part in our many challenges, ranging from restoring corrupted files from a flash drive to taking down walls with a sledgehammer. Once a challenge has been completed, the user will be added to our glorious hall of fame, where friends and employers can awe at your achievements.

Replace cordless drill batteries

There are some Bosch cordless drills whose cells could be replaced. Figure out which cells are suitable, get em ordered, replace the cells and make sure device works as expected



Hack Linnar Viik's lawnmower

Lawnmower's immobilizer prevents using the lawmower. Disable the PIN code and claim the device. This job requires some specific skills - use Bus Pirate as SPI bus master to access the Flash chip on the device. First dump the existing firmware as-is. Enter the PIN incorrectly again and attempt to identify which part of the Flash counts the invaid PIN code attempts. Try to reset the counter first.


SPI

Fix Samsung digital signage box

The MOSFET-s in power supply chain are fried. Attempt to figure out what went wrong and fix it.



Smartboard pen picker replacement

The Smartboard pen picker was lost, there's connector for that. Find a replacement pen picker or 3D print one.




Team

We have our roots in the Robotics Club of Estonian IT College as several key memebers are graduates of the College and were active Robotics Club members in the past. Most of us have numerous years of work experience in ICT sector and we've travelled the world to see how hackerspaces and makerspaces operate. We know that we've got what it takes to operate k-space.
