Wi-Fi in exchange for bitcoins

Richard Green from the UK has presented a system via GitHub which enables people to share their own Wi-Fi connection with strangers in exchange for bitcoin payments. The system consists of a Raspberry Pi, which is plugged into the router and, together with a Wi-Fi antenna, enables users within range to share the connection. When such users attempt to access the connection, they are first shown a window prompting them to make the payment. Users can decide for themselves if their Wi-Fi connection remains open for just a few hours or for several days.
