Everybody should love their router!
“Home is where your wifi connects automatically”. Yet when was the last time you took a look at your boring router ? Yes, routers – despite them being the gateway to the universe’s information – are boring. They sit in their corner, unnoticed, unglamorous.
Boring yet dangerous!
Our home routers are a menace! So much so that the FCC has been considering a proposal to require manufacturers to lock down computing devices (routers, PCs, phones) to prevent modification if they have a “modular wireless radio”. This means hardware and wifi freedom are being attacked.
In response to these ridiculous measures, we’re throwing a playful DIY router pimping party. Let’s celebrate our freedom of creative hacking! We call all router-owners to reflect on the unique bond they have with their router. We launched an open call to all router owners to re-design their router in a way to reflect its position in their life. See how other router owners imagine their router ! May the best pimped router win!
