Spray on antenna? Roger that.

Spray on antenna? Roger that.

The startup Chamtech introduced a spray-on antenna that conveniently helps boost the reception signal. The company states that it can turn almost anything into a makeshift antenna – a wall, clothing or even a tree. 

Why it matters

The spray is energy efficient and handy. While natural antennas need an external power source, the spray makes one obsolete. In a world where we are more and more connected to digital devices and what they can offer, can this invention remove reception ‘black spots’? Does this mean we can connect no matter where we are?
