Anti-WiFi Wallpaper Prevents People From Stealing Your Signal

Anti-WiFi Wallpaper Prevents People From Stealing Your Signal

Available to consumers in 2012, the wallpaper uses silver particles to filter out frequencies, at the cost of the average mid-range wallpaper.

A revolutionary soon-to-be-released wallpaper will allow users to protect Wi-Fi networks in the home.

Utilizing a unique configuration of conductive ink containing silver particles, the textile filters out three frequencies preventing Wi-Fi theft and intrusion.  The wallpaper only works when installed over all surfaces – including floors and ceilings, and the manufacturers are reportedly creating a transparent version which can be applied to windows to allow for full coverage.  For those with styling concerns – the product can be covered with traditional wallpaper and/or carpet.

Engineered by the institut polytechnique Grenoble INP and the Centre Technique du Papier, the wallpaper will be available to consumers in 2013 at a cost of the average mid-range wallpaper.
