    I've been working on the menuing side [1] based on crossing Fitt's Law with Huffman trees. But, don't know the constraints for ALS.

    Hopefully, whomever takes this on doesn't take the standard Accessibility approach, which is adding an extra layer of complexity on an existing UI.

    A good friend, Gordon Fuller, found out he was going blind. So, he co-founded one of the first VR startups in the 90's. Why? For wayfinding.

    What we came up with a concept of Universal design. Start over from first principles. Seeing Gordon use an Accessible UI is painful to watch, it takes three times as many steps to navigate and confirm. So, what is the factor? 0.3 X?

    Imagine if we could refactor all apps with a LLM, and then couple it with an auto compete menu. Within that menu is personal history of all your past transversals.

    What would be the result? A 10X? Would my sister in a wheelchair be able to use it? Would love to find out!

    Am experimenting with a new menuing idiom with SwiftUI [1]. It is both delightful and infuriating. Am delighted by autolayout. But, way too much semantics for observers. To simplify, I intentionally avoided structs, for view models, and resorted to classes.

    I hope to create a package and use it for metal based visual music synthesizer. But, those complaints about playing nice with UIKit? Am rather worried.

    Okay, so, your comment about a "Dasher + Guitar Hero music theory/improvisation practice program" just sent me down a huge rabbit hole...

    Well, rabbit hole(s) plural, I guess, most not directly related. :D

    Largely because I made the "mistake" of looking at your HN profile & discovering you're also in NZ & we seem to have somewhat overlapping interests (and an affinity for "bacon" in account names, apparently), so, some thoughts[0]... :)

    # Topic 1: Nissan Leaf VSP hacking

    After reading your recent posts ( & on this topic & noting your remark about wanting to try reverse engineering a firmware image, I found the following thesis PDF (via a brief google search for `"reverse engineer" "firmware" "Renesas"`):


    Not really what I was anticipating finding but seems relevant to your interests--I don't think it was already in your resource list.

    While the thesis addresses the Renesas 78K0 rather than the Renesas 78K0R, from a brief look at the "Flash Protection" PDF Application Note in your resource list it seems there's a large overlap.

    Perhaps most significantly the author presents "novel methods" that combine bootloader binary analysis with constraint-based power glitching in an effort to improve on the results described in "Shaping the Glitch".

    While I haven't read the entire 186 pages :D they theorize that using their approach extracting 8kB firmware might only take ~10 hours.

    And, most helpfully, they even published their source code under the GPL here:

    So, an interesting adjacent read even if it turns out not to be directly applicable to your situation.

    Given I have an interest in & a little experience with firmware reversing my original thought was to maybe provide some hopefully helpful references that more generically related to firmware reversing but more specific is good too, I guess. :)

    In terms of reverse engineering tooling, I've used Rizin/Cutter/radare2 previously:

    On the CAN tooling/info front, you might be interested in taking a look at my "Adequate CAN" list which I originally wrote-up for a client a couple years ago:

    Some other probably outdated reverse engineering tooling links of mine:

    In terms of how to approach RE, other than just "getting started & digging in" & learning by doing, I've sometimes found it informative to read other people's firmware reverse engineering write-ups to learn about potentially useful approaches/tools.

    Anyway, hopefully some of this is helpful!

    [0] I have a tendency to be a little... "verbose" and/or "thorough" (depending on one's POV :) ) so I'll probably split this over a couple of comments, in case I run out of steam while writing and for topic separation.
