Always wanted to use Chainfire's DSLR Controller app, but don't have a Wi-Fi enabled Canon EOS camera? Chainfire's got a solution for you called the "Wi-Fi Stick."

Along with a new Wi-Fi Stick centered app, Chainfire today posted a walkthrough on how to craft the device, which will enable your Canon EOS camera to work with your Android phone or tablet, all by yourself.

For those who are wondering what we're talking about, DSLR Controller is an app that debuted in 2011 as the very first of its kind, allowing users to control their EOS cameras remotely from an Android device. It was amazing then, and it's only gotten better since.

Essentially, the build-it-yourself Wi-Fi Stick is an Android TV Stick combined with a power pack and the appropriate software.

    Was thinking about picking up one of these Android sticks for TV use. Now I can justify a second reason too! Chainfire is seriously one of the most talented and creative devs in the Android world.

    That's awesome. I just wish he could get his app working for Nikon cameras.
