MeshPoint is a rugged WiFi access point that anybody can set up in any environment (rain, snow, mud, etc.) in seconds. It’s a crisis-response tool enabling a non-technical person to quickly set up data connectivity infrastructure in an area affected by the crisis.

Setting up WiFi internet access for a large number (100+) of devices in an adverse environment requires substantial expertise, time, and money. We learned this the hard way when we were setting up WiFi hotspots in refugee camps in rural Eastern Croatia.

Our device allows anybody to do that in seconds, and for a fraction of cost. It also allows a rapid deployment of a self-forming, self-healing mesh network consisting of a number of MeshPoint devices, thus providing wireless data connectivity over a much wider area -- think ad-hoc local internet that could be set up in a disaster area to enable emergency communication. To that point, MeshPoint is a rugged, Mil-spec grade device that can handle any environment, with ample...

We created MeshPoint with bigger picture in mind. Our product is Hacker and Maker friendly and it's Open Source to the bone. Since our product is made mostly out of off-the-shelf components we wanted to share our files and documentation on how to assemble and 3D print necessary parts so everybody from makers community can pitch in to help in crisis situations.
