Hybrid Car – More Fun with Less Gas

Did you build a prototype remote solar vpn server of $50USD spare parts in garage at home?

For fun & profit, I will like to design a cheap "droppable"  
VPN server that will be placed a mile or so away from a
a known wifi hotspot, where the portable device would serve  
as a portable vpn server on the internet.  

My prototype budget is about $50 US Dollars.

I do not see this has been done before, so here my idea for  
your review. Your experience & knowledge would be highly
appreciated. I'm thinking of selling these when I can
make them more cheap. I have not built it yet so I
only are in the start of prototype idea stages.

PROTOTYPE:
1. RADIO.
2. COMPUTER.
3. POWER.

RADIO:
a. Any small 12VDC wifi radio & router should work.
b. Maybe the Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco M2 perhaps?
c. Prototype cost is near $0 US Dollars.

COMPUTER:
a. Any cheap computer board with Ethernet & USB should work.
b. Maybe the Raspberry Pi Model B should work?
c. Prototype cost is near $5 US Dollars.

POWER:
a. Need only charges & supplies 12 volts should work.
b. Maybe this Amazon 6W solar panel should work?
(Amazon.com product link shortened)
c. Maybe a 12VCD gel battery should also work.
d. Prototype cost is near $0 US Dollars for the solar panel.
e. Prototype cost is near $5 US Dollars for the 12VCD battery.

I have not built this yet, before I go in wrong directions, I would  
enjoy to ask if you have better ideas for parts to improve  
specifications or to keep the prototype costs down.

Your helping ideas are much welcome ahead of time!

I can build without more ideas.
But would like to know how you fixed problem.
If not answers, I will fix myself.

 What is the radio part for? If that part depends on an existing WIFI
signal to work, then computer part can do already.
