Tired of bible thumpers at your door? Have some weirdo try to sell you steak out of the back of his pickup truck? Just wanna avoid having to peek out a window and risk getting seen?!?!?
Well we have the product for YOU! Introducing the IPi! No we didn't cheekily rip off Apple's naming scheme. IPi is named after the fact this is a wireless camera to stream video to your device! Using its IP address, you can connect via VNC and VLC; or by using motionEyeOS! This WONDROUS device is is built with a Raspberry Pi Zero W and the Raspberry Pi Camera V1 (V2 Camera should fit as well, but was not tested)
Here at FFFTech, our bumbling engineers hate wires, (DEAR GOD THEY'RE EVERYWHERE) so being a Raspberry Pi with wireless capability, only the power cord is needed to be connected! But with a little know-how, a portable power source can be added for even LESS fiddly wires!
Due to the idiot engineer's design intent on security, the IPi should be printed in a color the closely matches it's surroundings, or at least Black, to make it more difficult to see in darker environments. But YOU can print it in any color you want; from: "That's some ripe cheese..." Yellow, all the way to "HE"S CHOKING!" Blue!
So STOP answering door salesmen and START hiding behind your computer! Print an IPi Today!
