The WarSting Hobbit Sword Glows Blue In The Presence Of Unsecured Wi-Fi [Video]


Biblo’s trusty sword, Sting, glowed blue in the presence of Orcs, but WarSting glows blue in the presence of unsecured Wi-Fi. Basically, it’s a toy Sting sword that has been modified with a Spark Core that will interact with the sensors and actuators inside the sword. A little soldering and programming, and you have a sword that will jump on unsecured networks and publish the message, “{YOUR WI-FI NETWORK} has been vanquished!”.

See the video after the break.
