A wireless drive (need help with components)


#1

Hey everyone,
I’m thinking to build a pen drive with no port access. I mean I want to connect the pen drive through WiFi direct and transfer the data between the laptop and the pen drive through WIFI direct or hotspot. But I am not sure what components to use for my project.

Well, here these were the components which I thought:

  1. Arduino UNO
  2. ESP8266 WIFI module
  3. SD card reader

I’m looking for some help, I have my first major project review on 2nd january.
Thank you.

Hey, in this case Arduino Uno isn’t the best option for a controller. Better to go with nodemcu or wemos mini. Here’s a good tutorial you can use, that also explains the code for the project- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJP3Ie3nE7c

Oh okay… Can I use nodemcu to transfer the data between the storage chip and pc thru hotspot?
