Blink Mini Reverse Engineering

Hacking apart an Amazon camera to make it run my own code

Blink Mini camera from Amazon.
A camera that has been violently opened up.

I attended the 2022 Cybertruck Challenge in early July, in which I learned about hacking, then proceeded to hack trucks and truck accessories.

With what I gleaned from the 20 hours of instruction and 20 hours of hacking and reverse engineering, I decided that I should apply what I learned to a real device! These $20 Blink Mini cameras seemed like perfect victims… at the time.

Big thanks to Ada and Erin for all their help with this project!
