Hey guys, this project other looks interesting.

"PirateBox is a self-contained mobile collaboration and P2P file sharing
device. Inspired by pirate radio and the free culture movment, PirateBox
utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile
wireless file sharing networks where users can anonymously share images,
video, audio, documents, and other digital content."



The PirateBox system can be built for approximately US $100 (not
including the case or optional battery). In fact, it can be built for
much less assuming you already have some of the equipment. The PirateBox
is made up of the following components:

    * Free Agent Dockstar (Note: other devices will work as well
including the GoFlex and Pogoplug)

    * Asus WL330GE Wireless router

    * SanDisk Cruzer 16GB (other USB Flash Drives will work as well)

    * Pirate Dome Lunch Box

    * Energizer XP8000 Rechargeable Power Pack (optional)
