Wi-Fi signals become more and more distorted as they travel through the air and, of course, after a while they become too distorted to be useful (after one-twentieth of a mile) due to noise. This is basically what limits the range to the interior of buildings and this also limits the potential applications of Wi-Fi to those in buildings. Imagine connecting wirelessly and cheaply to someone 45 miles away without using the internet? And how about while using less energy? You could also eliminate all of the network cables in the largest buildings cheaply and efficiently. The transmitter in the image at the top of this page can reportedly do all of that. This transmitter achieves that by utilizing an algor...
