$150 “Qux” gadget sure looks a lot like this generic Linux TV box that wholesalers list for $15
There’s some buzz on the internet about the Qux ("Cucks", see), a mysterious gadget being marketed at Trump supporters. Its Indiegogo campaign went into orbit, with more than a thousand people apparently ponying up $150 or more to pre-order one.
The brainchild of former Infowars reporter Millie Weaver, the Qux has succeeded in spite of or because of that lack of specificity, raising more than $170,000 on crowdfunding site Indiegogo with a promise to create electronic "portals" free from censorship.
