HP LaserJet Hacks

Out of all the hacks I could possibly think up of on my own, the HP LaserJet screen hack wouldn’t be one of them. A guy over at Kovaya has successfully hacked the little dot matrix display on a laser jet printer to display any message you want such as Insert Coin. On the larger printers with a larger screen he also managed to write some code to send weather reports that automatically update every 10 minutes. The weird thing is that nobody really notices and although some read, they didn’t question why a printer was doing weather reports on it’s screen.
