The CHIP/MQTT Broker

The CHIP/MQTT Broker features an early CHIP computer module, tri-color LED illumination, wrapped in a decorative Steampunk-inspired ticker-tape glass dome and base. The CHIP features on-board WiFI/Bluetooth, lots of GPIO pins and Linux in flash-memory. It’s set up as a local WiFi access point and runs the Mosquitto MQTT broker. The LED responds to MQTT messages from the network and other WiFi devices through Python programs and regular Linux scripts.
