Spray-on antenna to revolutionize the mobile industry


One of Google’s latest projects is “Solve For X,” a project that allows people to propose ideas that would solve world problems through technology. We did not think great projects would start spawning so quick, though. The latest Solve for X proposition includes a spray-on antenna, which may revolutionize the way mobile communications work.

Chamtech Etnerprises claims that this product can increase mobile energy efficiency by 10%. It is also more light-weight, and as you can assume, it can be used on anything. Imagine being able to paint an antenna into your device when you find yourself without signal. Even better, how about painting your car with it. Maybe even your house, or a tree. The possibilities are endless.

CTO Rhett Spencer mentions that Chamtech is in the talks with government-based customers (including the military). This is the reason why not much detail about the product is provided. But it seems like it uses organic elements to improve magnetic and radio frequency signals. Being organic, it can be used under any circumstances. This includes outer space, underwater, and wherever it may be seen fit.

Undoubtedly, this would be a great solution for mobile carriers. Instead of installing antennas, they could just go and spray an antenna on anything. And if you live in a low-signal area, all we would need is a technician to come and spray your house with this technology.

What do you guys say? Is this the future? Check out the video and let us know what you think.

         I shall spray my Magnum brand prophylactics with this technology. I will conduct the radio fq current through my appendage so I do not have to damage my phone with this paint. Since it is organic and by using this proposed method the paint should pose no harmful affects to either of my devices.

        Can you see me dangling my make shift antenna out the window as my wife is driving us down the interstate.

      But those do work, do they? They said so on eBay! They can’t have lied to me, they had honest sounding screen names.

      Funny thing, that’s exactly what came to my mind when I read the article.

    Er, this all sounds great and amazing but I call shenanigans on the airplane example. The plane they showed being 14 miles overhead?!? That’s where the SR-71 was designed to operate, not the territory of that plane they showed and I doubt a SR-71 was brought out of retirement for this test. Still, I hope this stuff works. It would be a nice jump for a lot of stuff.

    Amazing technology!  …but maybe he should get someone to speak for him.

    Does this guy remind anyone else of the evil coder from Grandma’s Boy?
