Using this is against federal law in the US, so I suppose buyer beware.

Edit: source https://transition.fcc.gov/eb/jammerenforcement/jamfaq.pdf

Edit 2: selling and marketing it is also against federal law, and the seller appears to be a US resident with credentials listed in the Kickstarter. Facepalm.

This is a great idea, but I'm not sure of the legality in various jurisdictions.

The video has a disclaimer to only use this on one's home network for protection. However, less than a second later it is shown in a car, presumably for wardriving.

The text of the page says in passing that multiple attacks can be launched, yet only one is described. If I need to deauth people on my network, I think I'll do it myself.

Great idea, though! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for this! I know what I am doing (after the ali stuff has arrived in a couple of weeks).

Heh. I almost hope that they make a ton of money out of this. It's so bad its almost pretty good. Would it qualify as a satirical fundraiser?

That kickstarter is hilarious.

It's a scam.

I feel like these things could do a lot more harm than good if put in the wrong hands...

tl;dr esp8266 deauth attack. You can DIY for as low as $1.
