I want to develop for Norns on the go, but can’t get hotspot to work. Wondered about a battery powered router. Anyone know of and got experience with one that will create a local WiFi network that doesn’t throw errors when no internet connection exists?
Are you having trouble making a hotspot from norns? If so, maybe try making a hotspot directly from your laptop, or from a phone and then having both the norns and development machine join it.
Some 3G routers don’t have an internal battery but can be powered via 5V from a USB port. There are also things like this, which I’ve not tried myself but could be a nice traveling companion for something like norns:
(Disclaimer: I do not own a norns so please ignore if this is irrelevant due to a misunderstanding)
