The Xiaomi Xiaofang WiFi Cube Camera is extremely wanted nowadays; many sites now have an expected restock due to its massive popularity. The webcam is very cheap compared to all the functionalities and high-end performance that you get. Even brother and sister webcams can be combined to check an entire setting.
After buying the Xiaomi XiaoFang WiFi Camera two software engineer friends wanted to test the relation with the more similar but expensive. Their question: "Is the Xiaofang webcam secure and is the webcam just a copycat of the SPOT webcam with a Chinese language interface?".
They placed their results on Github, #fang-hacks, and created a custom image which enables users to update their Xiaofang with a clean English interface and with new features! The Github project becomes more and more a community project. Which is a very cool result!

Several months ago kickstarter had a very successful project called the "Fidget Cube", which pledged $6,465,690 of its $15,000 goal. In the last month often a Facebook advertisement from Gearbest was shown with a similar cube for halve the price of the Fidget Cube. There are stories on product copycats from China derived from successful Kickstarter projects, even before the real production has started. Normally we would not support such copycats but this time we were to curious to try the product.
