(Ignore the photograph, he just stole that from Amazon.)
This is a small, low power web server to be installed on your home network. In the bad old days of 1995, installing a home server was a common way to have a “personal home page” (Which is what we were forced to have before Facebook existed), but nowadays, it would be pretty unusual. Even for purely internal things, people tend to just use super-cheap cloud hosting.
Oddly, it’s called “WebKit 2.0”, which implies that it’s his second released version, but I can’t find any evidence of a first version. (Never mind that “WebKit” is a name that’s already in use by Apple to describe an important piece of their operating system. Good Job on researching!)
But what about connectivity?
OH NO! BEES!
Looks like he “invented” this brand new piece of hardware by buying a RaspberryPi educational computer and cutting off the HDMI and USB ports.
Brilliant. This man is a true genius among engineers.
Good job on putting that tape over the logo, though. That shows real effort.
As this person pledged €1 to point out, there’s absolutely no customers for this.
Who would need a personal server, but not have the confidence to just use a regular one? (Like a Raspberry Pi for example!)
It’s targeted at IT nerds who don’t know anything about IT. I know that sounds like the setup to a joke about the IT guys where you work, but actually it’s just the description of a stupid product nobody needs.
This project was kindly suggested by Andrea L (Who also identified the stolen case photograph.)
