I reverse engineered a USB device in order to make a clone of it using a Teensy.
I wanted to use an expensive theatre lighting controller, but couldn't afford it. So I hired one for a weekend, packet sniffed the USB protocol, and made my Teensy spoof the original device so that the official software would talk to it.
In the video I've tried to explain a bit about how USB works, as well as show the complete process I went through to clone the device. Hopefully this is something a little different, but still of interest to the Element14 core audience!
