Life as a Hacker

How did it start

Toys, thats where it all started. Hacking the DC motor and LED's to do things of relevance to me. That did suffice my neighbours recommendations to represent myself as a hardware hacker till my 8th Grade , then it happened. I blew up my father's old Optonica- Sharp TV and then I was famous. And then I made a mosquito killer using HV transformer. A massive overkill for the purpose but one which did serve well.Then it happened, I got qualified as a Maker.
