$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.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
