ProxyGambit Obscures Your Physical Location While On The Internet

allbig

Hackaday pointed out a great project from Samy Kamkar to build the ProxyGambit, a device that obscures your physical location when accessing a WiFi network.  This is similar to the recent ProxyHam project that was mysteriously canceled, but ProxyGambit uses an Adafruit FONA to proxy access to the WiFi network over a 2G cellular connection.  This means you can access a public WiFi network without having to physically be near the network’s wireless access point (only the ProxyGambit hardware has to be nearby).  Check out the ProxyGambit project page for more details and all the software–nice work!
