Hacking the Nabaztag – Arduino injects via I2C data into RFID Reader

Wow! After more than two years I finally got my hands dirty hacking the Nabaztag rabbit. The release of the source code last summer were very encouraging here! Expect some awesome results in the next time πŸ™‚

Let’s start with NabaztagInjector, an Arduino Library to inject data:

What bothered me for long was the missing possibility to connect external devices to the rabbit. How awesome would it be to use the rabbit for sending data into the net? Imagine it as WIFI shield you Arduino.

Guess what – that’s possible: replacing the RFID reader with an Arduino (both use the I2C bus) running a simulation of the RFID reader chip, enabled me to inject any custom data to the rabbit. Hacked!

As result, I created this tiny Arduino library to encapsulates the full process behind and easy API:

Flattr this!

    Great Work! I will have a deeper look into this this weekend. It’s time to play around with the nabaztag:tag again πŸ˜‰
