The Packet Potato is a packet analyzer! Or... is it a spectrum analyzer? It's a big hard to tell which it is, but either way, it's probably the worst one of those two things, ever.
The Packet Potato is a wearable electronic badge that uses an ESP8266 to listen for 802.11 frames on a specific channel. The channel is changeable at any time by pressing the "+" and "-" buttons on either side of the 14-segment display. When the Packet Potato hears an OFDM frame, it blinks the "OFDM" shape. If it hears a DSSS frame, it blinks the "DSSS" shape. It also has "MGMT", "CTRL", and "DATA" LED's that blink the frame type, each time a frame is heard.
You can see why it's difficult to tell whether it's a packet analyzer, or a spectrum analyzer!
The Packet Potato is powered by a 3.7v LiPo battery, and uses an external Adafruit MicroLiPo charger, both of which are included.
