Raspberry Pi has given the DIY-er the power to create some cool tech, such as this talking microwave. But it also has the power to create devices that fall on the darker side of things. O’Connor, a security researcher, simply took a tiny Raspberry Pi Model A computer and a few over-the-counter sensors and placed this into a small plastic box, one that could easily be placed anywhere throughout a city.
He could even “spy” on himself if he wasn’t online, through Wi-Fi “pings.” The device, which he calls “creepyDOL,” could inconspicuously be placed in a strategic location around a city. How long before someone would notice?
