Building a BlueSniper Rifle

Building a BlueSniper Rifle

snip.jpgTom’s Hardware has a cool step-by-step on building a long range Bluetooth sniper rifle. After construction they were able to find 20 devices from over a half mile away in downtown Los Angeles. This is part one of the article which is only hardware construction with the antenna, gumstick computer, etc.. the 2nd part of the article should be posted soon and it will explore “various open-source and never-before-released Bluetooth sniffing and attack tools on the Gumstix computer.”

    Seems like the perfect way to get yourself arrested and thrown into a jail cell in Cuba with no access to a lawyer.

    hahahahaha nice article on “how to get neutralized by LA SWAT for having something that roughly looks like a silenced sniper rifle pointing at buildings”

    Next article will be “BlueTooth sniffing part 2:Look more menacing!”

    Here we explore the RPG-7, SA-3, JAVELIN, and ever popular TOW mods for your BlueSniper sniffer.

    They should have dressed it up as a tripod-mounted (or at least mountable on a stabilizer) camera with a telephoto lens.

    Seems like it should be possible to use this and a Bluetooth mouse/keyboard to control a Bluetooth-enabled computer from a mile away. I find that possibility scarier than stealing data from phones and PDAs, personally.
