FindDay #5

Every Friday I share the five coolest things I’ve found on the web in the last week.

 

1 – P.O.R.T.A.L

PORTAL is an open-source firmware for routers which aims to provide a hardware device that protects Internet privacy by sitting between your computer(s) and your ISP connection. It’s sort of a do-it-yourself Anonabox.

 

2 – Ring

Ring is an open-source secure communications project that provides a more private alternative to things like Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.

3 – I2P

The Invisible Internet Project (I2P) is not new, but I have a renewed interest in it in light of recent and ongoing events. The idea is to create a better Internet on top of the existing one.

There’s been a number of projects who have attempted this using various approaches, but I2P is a very mature project and is usable today. I like the low-level approach and the fact that it doesn’t rely on a lot of cleverness to get the job done. I’ll probably be talking more about it soon.

4 – Tesla Model 3 “cruising around”

5 – Moai 3D Printer

It’ wouldn’t be FindDay without at least one 3D printer link, right?

There’s no shortage of Kickstarter 3D printer disasters, and this could be just another one but I’ve heard from several reliable sources that this project is legit. There’s been a few resin-based open-source 3D printers in the last few years but most of them rely on DLP projectors which makes them somewhat expensive and limits their resolution to what’s available from the projector.

Where other printers use a projector, Moai uses lasers; what more needs to be said?
