The CHIP/MQTT Broker

The CHIP/MQTT Broker features an early CHIP computer module, uses a tri-color LED as a user interface and is wrapped in a decorative Steampunk-inspired ticker-tape glass dome and base. The CHIP has 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.
