The decapping of the 3DS chip is the sort of reverse engineer that just amazes me. The author mentions Bunnie's Book as a source of inspiration and I have to agree. Bunnie's book operates well above the level of chip decapping, but it gives you a window into an entire world of engineering that is usually hidden. Last year Bunnie released his book for free in memory of Aaron Swartz.

Bunnie is really cool guy and a hero of hackers around the world. Amoung other projects he is making the ultimate engineers laptop.
