    ATYPYK

    I am kinda obsessive about Wi-Fi. I’d rather not be anywhere where there isn’t a free Wi-Fi signal for me to leach onto. This ‘Wireless Air Activator’ from French design firm ATYPYK gets my attention like a red flag to a bull. Unfortunately the Wave is very lowtech. Just paint on transparent plastic. No chips, circuits and antennas included.

    If you want to get my attention (to rob me from my MacBook Pro, wallet and/or iPhone) just get a cute girl to wave this in front of me and I will be completely defenseless…
