Voting-Machine Pac Man-Mod


(Youtube Direktpacman, via Make)

Was macht mit einem Wahlcomputer, der sich als unzuverlässig erwiesen hat? Man ersetzt die Software darauf mit Pac Man, das macht man damit. Die beste Anwendung für Wahlcomputer, ever!

This is the Sequoia AVC Edge touch-screen DRE voting machine. In 2008, it was used in jurisdictions with almost 9 million voters. Alex Halderman and Ari Feldman replaced the voting software with Pac-Man. They did this in three afternoons, without breaking any tamper-evident seals. It would be easy to modify the software to steal votes, but that’s been done before, and Pac-Man is more fun.
