Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Bitcoin Wifi Hotspot running on Raspberry Pi.

Hi all,
I have completed a working prototype of a Bitcoin enabled Wifi Hotspot running on a Raspberry Pi. I will upload a video in hopefully the next 5-7 days once I've made the web pages a little bit prettier.
Anyway, here's what it does :
1) creates an open SSID called "BitcoinWifi". Allows any connection to a bitcoin node on port 8333 (thus enabling easier wifi payments).
2) any webpage gets redirected to a payment page on which the user can pay an administrator - adjustable fee for access ( so far just 1hr or 24hr but these are just initial timeslots).
3) upon payment (there is a bitcoin formatted URI on the payment page above which should enable most bitcoin smartphone wallets to go directly to their payment mechanism), the redirect is disabled and full internet access is allowed. The wired subnet that the router is on is blocked apart from the actual "real" router for internet access (so users will not be able to access anything on your network).
4) after the time period, the restriction is automatically started again.
The device is zero config to get running. Just plug into a 5v usb micro and ethernet into your router. To extract the bitcoins, you'll need to login as an administrator (password will be included in the package), and just go to an admin page and put in an address to which the bitcoin balance will be forwarded.
I am going to be marketing it shortly (as mentioned, just need to tidy up the webpages as they look awful - I'm a developer first and foremost!).
I will be selling the device as a Rasp Pi + WiFi USB + SD Card for probably about 1 btc to start with (which is pretty much the sum of the parts) once I have a demo online (I am tempted to put up a pre-order page but I know how much you all love those - "shipping in two weeks" (tm) promises). However, I am collecting names, contact details of interested parties now.
Feel free to get in touch with me via this post or PM and we can exchange email addresses.

Video of the Rasperry Pi Bitcoin Wifi Hotspot from a client/user point of view.

http://youtu.be/jzeBaizybgs
This short video shows the experience from a user / client situation up to the point where they are connected to the internet. Skip to 0:40 if you want to get past the intro.
Just to help clear up some confusion, there are (at least) two distinct groups working on a "Bitcoin Wifi Hotspot". Myself (Richard Green) and the chaps at bips. The two projects have similar goals but are not (yet) related in any way beyond that. Additionally, we have an open dialogue between us and I hope we can keep it that way.
As far as I understand, they plan to open source their service as well and it is far more mature than my efforts currently, however the one I am developing works on the raspberry pi so will probably cost a fair bit less (but will obviously be less powerful).
I will be releasing the source here: https://github.com/ragmondo/BitcoinWifi when it is mature enough for alpha testing. However, if there are any python devs or html/js people out there who want to help, let me know and perhaps we can start collaborating a bit earlier.
I am going to be open about the business model. I would like to sell the completed products for just the sum of the cost of the individual parts and perhaps make a small commission on bulk orders, however the software will be libre/gratis free. Also, I plan to have a selection of bitcoin sites whitelisted (ie already "open") to non paying wifi users that I would hope help contribute to some development costs (in exchange for promoting their site) - get in touch if you are interested !!
Lastly, if you do want to get started on this, then the three things you need (rasp pi, SD card and Wifi dongle) are listed on the youtube video comments - they include an amazon referral link so I will get a 4% kickback. Note that these links are not in this post to comply with the community rules in the sidebar.
