There's nothing more summer-y than doing something not on your phone. But that's no phone now, is it? Why not be the courteous person at the beach who brings free Wi-Fi for everyone? Wi-Fi of course being a Wireless Access Point with no internet access that switches the SSID between awful puns every 10 seconds, kicking everyone off the network in the process.
Of course the natural question would be how one might implement such a system, and the good news is that all it requires is $40 and a USB charging cable.
Setup is simple. You don’t have to spend much to making it, which means there’s more time for you to play with it. First follow this guide. Then download the code from the attachments and run it on the board. To do so connect to the onion using the address http://omega-ABCD.local/ with the last 4 digits of the MAC address for ABCD and install the editor app and console app. The code should be created in
opkg install python3-light cd /usr/bin python3 pun.py
Now you can use the battery pack and bring the device on the go!
Using the same method of changing the AP name there’s a ton of other simple projects you can do. You could advertise for your website/hackster profile or whatever you think of.
