PirateBox DIY

File:Piratebox 2-0 Cafe1

PirateBox DIY @ David Darts Wiki.

PirateBox is a self-contained mobile communication and file sharing device. Inspired by pirate radio and the free culture movement, PirateBox utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile wireless file sharing networks where users can anonymously chat and share images, video, audio, documents, and other digital content.

The PirateBox can be built using a number of different configurations depending upon your needs and budget. The basic system consists of a lightweight web server connected to a wireless device. When users join the PirateBoxwireless network and open a web browser, they are automatically redirected to the PirateBox welcome page. They can then begin uploading or downloading files.

  1. I love connecting to anonymous servers and downloading all sorts of anonymously manipulated content to my computer. I also like sliding my hands across tables in food courts or escalators and then sticking my fingers up my nose. What could possibly go wrong?

    I can appreciate the fun of building the device but its overall usefulness as an open file transfer utility is something I’d question, particularly when malicious wifi ‘open’ access points already exist.

  2. Cute. By the way, is anybody working on some similar kind of wireless point-to-point? Kind of like FidoNet, but off the local phone network?

  3. Hell yeah. This is definitely the direction the internet is going in.
