$5 WiFi for the Pi Zero without using USB #PIday #Raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Thanks to Drew for sending in this project by mincepi on hackaday.io

Remix of the awesome RPi WiFi project, optimized for low cost.

Cost is $5 each only if you build three. If you build one, it costs more like $9. But you really need three if you think about it, right?

First, I want to give well-earned credit to this wonderful project. (Read through it, it’s very informative.) I’m truly standing on the shoulders of giants here: all I’ve done is make it as small as possible, leveraging my technique of using resistors to attach a circuit board to the Pi Zero like I did here. I guess it’s kind of a reductionist thing. The result is a somewhat slow WiFi adapter for the Pi Zero for under $5.
