View WiFi Signals In Terms Of White Light (Video Proof)

Norway design researchers are working on displaying the material and spatial qualities of WiFi networks through light, demonstrating signal strength in long-exposure photographs. The researchers have built a tall wooden probe, measuring four meters high, a WiFi module, and used 80 LEDS.

The 80 LEDs run a length that pulses and raises based on the strength of a specified WiFi network. After three weeks of hard work in Oslo, Norway, the pulsing lights have created a physical representation of the invisible world of WiFi networks.

Z-Boost METRO Fixes Poor Cell Phone Service

For many people, it is hard to get a good cell phone signal in their own home. This is made more of a burden when the person does not have access to a “higher area” such as a rooftop to plant a high-gain antenna. Fortunately, the Z-Boost METRO YX-540 helps solve that problem. The device makes use of a window-mounted antenna and is designed to enhance weaker cell signals to improve call quality and reliability.

The signal booster is compatible with all wireless carries in the U.S. using 800 & 1900 MHz except Nextel/iDEN or 4G, 2100MHz phones. It was optimized for iPhones and tested on the iPhone 3, 3GS, and 4. In order to find the “best window” for installation, Z-Boost recommends visiting your exterior windows while…

Tiny Cube Cuts Mobile Phone Cost — Coming Soon

Lightradio is a small square device about the size of a Rubik’s cube, designed by Alcatel-Lucent. The device is essentially a cell phone tower enclosed in a 2.3 inch block, consuming 1.5 watts of power, powering a two-block radius. Alcatel-Lucent knows that the global wireless industry is spending 210 billion dollars a year to operate their networks and a quarter of that to upgrade them. Meanwhile, mobile data is expected to grow 30-fold in the next five years and 500-fold in the next ten years…
