Introduction: (Repurposed Tech) Altoids WiFi Project
I have made a simple USB Wifi enclosure out of an Altoids tin.
The adapter came out of a dead HTPC and would have otherwise been thrown away.
So I had an idea for a neat looking wireless adapter.
The adapter had a four pin socket that connected to the motherboard's four pin USB header.
I soldiered a USB cable to the adapter, soldiered the adapter's base to the Altoids tin, Mounted the RP-SMA jack to the wall of the tin, and fit everything neatly.
I think that this is a good example of creativity towards a greener idea.
