May the force be with you :)


Yes.. I bought this game.
Fun aside, both the headset
both the base have a nice JTAG port
and maybe a serial interface.
I got it this morning and I just started
inspecting the devices.
They communicate on 2.478 and 2.408 Ghz frequencies
it's not bluetooth but a normal serial over
the air. If you are curious like me,
the FCC site has FULL documentation
and pictures of the inside.
You will find them under these
FCC IDs: XCY150511UMI2009 and XCY150512UMI2009.
I'll keep you posted.
Yoda.

Note:
The 'unknown' chip on the base
you can't see on FCC site is a PIC16F727 44 pin.
The other 'blank' chip on the headset
is a PIC16F722 28 pin.

Zibri, I think my son would love this toy. Did you find it anywhere in Italy? I'm also interested in the hacking part of the toy, of course...
Please let me know if you bought it in Italy or over the internet... che me lo vado subito a comprare!

Cheers
F.

Dan: nothing (or everything) in my life is "just" for fuin :)

DanExtreme said...

do you have any idea if this is able to recognize what you think? or it just detects how "hard" you are thinking? It's very interesting... Does this have anything to do with BB's unlocking procedure?
Cheers!
Thnx 4 everything...

1: concentration level
2: meditation level

Can you please give me a link to the documentation and pictures on the FCC site? or just a link for the site...

@bayo:
Just click on the FCC IDs in the main post and you will get there.

This is awesome! Zibri I am an engineering student at a university in South Africa, I would really love to use this in a project or something. My programming background is pretty weak though :-( please could you provide more info on how you connected the force trainer to a computer (and the coding involved). Thanks very much Zibri, I'm a huge fan of your work!
