Magstripe Spoofer

A project I've been working on for a little bit but have been interested in doing for a while.

The idea has been done before, most notably on instructables, hackaday(1 2), and severeal others. I am undertaking this for several reasons: magstripes seem like a really interesting way to keep data and I want to learn more about them, none of these other projects produced a tool that was very visually appealing or that seemed very practical, and I want one to play around with.

The design for this project will follow what was outlined in the instructables article, but instead of the external mp3 player, I plan to integrate it into the units case, allowing for a dedicated storage space for card tracks.
