And presented in Dave's unique non-scripted overly enthusiastic style!
And it involves, well, Playboy magazine!

Why wouldnt you be able to sell the usb charger in australia without the ground pin? It says on the back it’s double insulated?
I was talking about the insulation (or lack of) on the pins.
That USB charger looks like it’s for an iPhone or something, except it looks a lot lower quality, oddly (it has the green dot, which is to do with a recall on an earlier model so they all have green dots now). So I’m guessing it’s a cheap ripoff adapter.
When you do your teardown of it, compare it to the real thing – someone tore the real one down and found it to be of extremely high quality.
He also tore down a crappy one for comparison
Would be nice to see what you have with the real thing and how it fits in between the crappy ones and the well designed ones.
Check out the Cypres device carefully. Some parachuting safety devices use a pyrotechnic charge to “cut the cord.”
it’s probably the case here.
The older xilinx spartans may be of use, older FPGAs have the advantage to need less power suplies and to be native 5V.
What Special Edition of Playboy magazine (month, year, contries) had the mutimedia Martini unit?
Playboy : June 2011, Russia
Vogue: December 2010, Russia
Don’t remember which had which advertisement. There is a chance that this martini one was actually from Vogue. Anyway, Playboy sounds better 😉

I jumped several times with Cypress. I would love to see the teardown. Great!
Btw. I takes about 100m to open the parashute, so 700feet should easily be enough… if it opens correctly.
To Michail & Ian.M, thanks.
The Vouge and Playboy advertisements were the same. It appears that the one for Vouge was exclusive to Russia but I have not found anything yet confirming the same for the one for Playboy.
@4:28, notice it’s not a power adapter, it’s “Power A dapeer”.
It’s also made in China twice!
