A Yagi-Uda antenna made out of Popsicle sticks and paper clips attached to a SparkFun ESP8266 Thing Dev Board? What more could you want? Well, I took this project to the next level by slapping it on a pan/tilt bracket. The program running on the Thing Dev would move the Yagi-Uda through several positions and find the highest WiFi signal strength. The servos would then return the antenna to that position. Fun and questionably useful.
