SparkFun Electronics came up with a neat idea for a set and forget file server. The Rogue Router can power itself using one of SparkFun’s new solar panels, so you can place it even in remote locations.

The server uses the Arduino-based SparkFun ESP8266 Thing Dev Board. It also has a microSD breakout board, a LiPo solar charger, a 2000mAh battery and a 3.5W solar panel.

SparkFun also made two smaller versions of the Rogue Router: the Rogue 1.2 and the Rogue Mini:

Head to SparkFun’s GitHub page to get the Rogue Router’s firmware and the 3D files for all three enclosures.
