In wake of Anonabox, more crowdsourced Tor router projects make their pitch

Based on the Chinese-built WT 3020A—a small wireless router that appears identical to the box that was the basis for the Anonabox—the Invizbox will have similar specs to the cancelled Kickstarter: 64 megabytes of RAM, 16 megabytes of Flash storage, and the Linux-based OpenWRT embedded OS. The main difference, according to the Dublin, Ireland-based team behind Invizbox (Elizabeth Canavan, Paul Canavan, and Chris Monks) is that their Tor router will be locked down better—and they won’t pretend that they’re using custom-built hardware. […] you could buy a Raspberry Pi-based Onion Router for $135—or build your own Onion Pi instead. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could probably reflash your existing router—Tor has been part of OpenWRT and other alternative router firmware for some time. – Sean Gallagher,Ars Technica
