This web documentary gives an inside view into the world of hardware hacking and the motivations behind the trend. Filmed by Jack Oatmon in Montreal he set out to understand why are more and more hobbyists experimenting with hacks and circuit bends; and also draw connections between this movement, consumer society and technological advancement. Projects include a custom oscilloscope made from a repurposed CRT, a 1938 teletype machine, a boom box made from recycled parts by Maxster and an XC3N working with modified 8-bit game systems.

Jack Oatman describes more examples of examples of hardware hacking on his blog here.
