HOW TO – Give yourself a sixth sense (for Wi-Fi)

The projectmaker writes in with how to give yourself a way to “feel” you’re near Wi-Fi…

Thought you might like my latest project — a 6th sense for wireless networks! This project allows one to literally “feel” wireless access points and their signal strength as easily as you feel the wind on your cheek. Note that this power is to be used only for good, unless an evil application can be demonstrated to pay better.

    “and an off-the-shelf Wi-Fi detector” damn I was looking forward to something that told you how to make one of those :)

    Oh well still very cool, have to grab one off ebay for $15.

    Cool stuff. I imagine it is only a matter of time before somebody connects this device to a vibrating “node” for sexual stimulation. Gives a whole new meaning to “hot-spot”. :)
