Make a Cheepy Cheap BirdBox with WiFi Camera (Great for Schools/STEM Projects)

Jude Pullen shared project on instructables and this video on Youtube!

So I made a WiFi BirdBox which is about 2-3x cheaper than most on the market.
Make one here:…
This hack also has the benefit of using a WiFi Endoscope Camera – which as well as being affordable, is also useful for inspecting all manner of things, but also allows you to use 1 camera over multiple bird boxes to save even more money!

As an engineer, I’m still in ‘experiment mode’ with this project, so I’ve done 4 variations of the format to see which is most successful. Might be all, some or none! Wish me luck.

Hope this is a useful project for Schools and STEM projects, and is a nice mix of tech and problem solving, as well as grappling with the variation of nature itself, in all its beauty.
