On August 3-5, 2012, the WarTron game was run by Snout. One aspect of the game was using the B.I.T.E. (Basic Interactive Terminal Eavesdropper) device to interact with the BIGMAC and CLU and other wartron entities. This page describes the B.I.T.E. device and how it was created.
IF you have pictures/stories of the B.I.T.E. in action I would love to add them to this website! If you are willing, send me the picture(s)/story(s) (or a link) to firstname.lastname@example.org
This page is a work in progress. Don't expect much info for at least a week or two while we recover from the game.
Eventually I plan to put all HW and SW sourcefiles up on this page under GPL so anyone can make a B.I.T.E. or use parts of the design in your own projects.
For now here are some pictures of the internals of B.I.T.E.
