Hackaday is a Blog which publishes several articles each day about hardware and software hacks. A hack refers to modifications of a product or software as well as the creation of something entirely new for convenience, novelty, functional or creative reasons. Hackaday also has a YouTube channel where it posts projects and how-to videos. Hackaday's logo is called The Jolly Wrencher.
Hack a Day was founded in 2004 as a web magazine for Engadget devoted to publishing and archiving "the best hacks, mods and DIY (do it yourself) projects from around web". Hackaday has since split from Engadget and is currently powered by Wordpress.com.
Hackaday Projects was launched in early 2014. It provides a hosting space for documenting hardware and software projects of any type.
