About This Class


A PirateBox is a portable electronic device, often consisting of a Wi-Fi router and a device for storing information, creating a wireless network that allows users who are connected to share files anonymously and locally.[1] By definition, this device is disconnected from the Internet.

in this course. ..

  • imagine having a wifi network server in your pocket that people are able to connect to
  • pirate box/library box is an anonymous file sharing and communication system (open source)
  • coffee shops, cafes, areas where people are using the internet, people are nosey.
  • share legal/illegal files, like a virtual dead drop between certain times, hard to find files
  • want to learn about connectivity, distance and sustainably powering such a device (IOT)
  • got free courses you want to give away, how about putting them on your library box?

hope you enjoy the course! (hope you will be building one!)
