Those Signals Cause Cancer!: Wi-Fi Proof Wallpaper

wifi-proof-wallpaper.jpg

Scientists in Grenoble, France have created a silver-crystal coated wallpaper that blocks Wi-Fi signals. The wallpaper will be available for sale next year, but amazingly isn't being marketing to the people who're convinced Wi-Fi signals cause testicular shrinkage and saggy boobs but instead as a defense against Wi-Fi stealing neighbors. Because God forbid you put a f***ing password on your router. "You can do that?" Haha -- yes grandma, you can.

Thanks to jedi GK, who locks down his Wi-Fi the old fashioned way: naming his router 'Connect_and_die'.

    eh, Foil is cheaper. Otherwise I'll hook it up to the wall like a 90's computer geek.

  • I still prefer my router's name, "PrettyFlyForAWiFi".

  •  Scruffy's is "ICU"

     Oooorrr you could simply line your walls with brass mesh and create a Faraday cage, blocking all wireless signals.

  • Or you know... encrypt your connection like a normal person without a tinfoil hat.

  • So what would stop it from going through the window?

  • The type of person who buys this probably has a aversion to sunlight anyway.

  • windows? who the f*ck need windows?

  • This is just what we need to stop the government from spying on us and beaming thoughts into and out of our heads!

    I have been thinking about this lately because i'm in a wifi environment for a large percentage of the day (E.g at school wifi is on, at home neighbours wifi is on 24h 7 days a week) and i'm paranoid that it could be doing something to my reproductive system .

    Oh yes, let's coat the walls so that the wifi will just bounce around like a freaking microwave making it worse. 

  • Lol true, but I think a wifi signal is closer to the range of sound waves than microwaves.

  • inconspicuous

    Actually WIFI = 2.4GHz, your microwave oven = 2.45GHz.

    did anyone else accidentally read "wifi-proof toilet paper" and get really interested?

  • just take my money!
