Add Emoji to your Wi-Fi’s SSID (with Firebug) 🖳🖧📶🎉 | #lulz #emoji
Mischief maker Jason Eppink explains the relatively simple process for adding emoji to your SSID:
(tl;dr — Use Firebug to remove a call to a function that checks for illegal characters from the “Submit” button.)
Do you want to use an emoji (or other non-Roman character) in your Wi-Fi SSID, but you keep getting foiled by a “Character is not allowed” error?
Now it’s all fun-n-dandy that others would get to see the name of your SSID in their list of available networks, but I’m curious if this process could also make it more difficult for intruders to join the network by disabling the SSID broadcast — I’ll have to do some experimenting with that!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
