There’s nothing worse than trying to use your Wi-Fi and not have it function at top capacity. Why might your network be bogged down? You can blame your cable company or you can blame your cheap-o neighbors.
French researchers must have had a real problem with their neighbors. They’ve developed a new wallpaper that’s designed to keep your Wi-Fi signals within your walls. The wallpaper utilizes a special ink containing silver crystals that block router operating frequencies.
This means your router works just as well within your designated space, but the signal will be trapped within the walls you add that “special” touch to.
No price range has been quoted yet, but it has been said to be within the same price range as a conventional, mid-range wallpaper. The source of the technology and the intel are from researches at the Grenoble Institute of Technology.
Now just add a few awesome Wi-Fi network names, and your neighbors should be a non-issue. At least in the Wi-Fi department.
