Build Your Own Security-First Texting Devices

Become an engineer and learn about coding, encrypted messages and private texting as you build 2 working communicators! Think walkie talks, but more practical – no one talks on the phone anymore.

Chatter is designed to show people that you can communicate free and remotely without the internet. It uses the so-called “LoRa” low-power wide-area network technology in order to send text messages, emojis, memes and GIFs.

The communicators use a publicly-available set of frequencies that are allocated for use cases like this one. With these frequencies, you’ll be able to send messages to the other communicator from 1 to 7 km away (depending on your surroundings). That’s over 76 football fields!

Build both and give one to your best friend, because texting yourself isn’t fun. Then you’ll be able to exchange texts, emojis, memes and even GIFs. Chatter also includes several other functions fun functions, including a friends list, chat color customization, profile avatars and notifications. Plus, the friend pairing allows you to connect with more than one other Chatter device.

For ages 14+.
