'Cloaking Device' Could Improve Cell Phone Call Quality
Scientists working on a way to bend light waves in order to cloak objects have stumbled onto another use for the technology. Duke University's David Smith, one of the researchers, said, "Cloaking technology could be used to make obstacles that impede communications signals 'disappear.'" Simply put, this technology could help cell phone signals avoid solid objects that stand in their way and become more "visible" to antennas receiving the signal. The technology involved uses a man-made substance called a meta-material. Duke's meta-material consists of 10,000 pieces of fiberglass arranged in a parallel pattern on a circuit board. The researchers said the technology is a long way from being able to actually make visible objects disappear.

Innovative New Wireless Antenna is Dramatically Smaller
Aug 24, 2017
Researchers at Northeastern University have demonstrated a new type of radio antenna that operates in the frequencies used for some cellular networks and Wi-Fi, but is up to 100 times smaller than current antenna designs. The new antenna can be manufactured on a single chip approximately 1mm across.
FCC Fines T-Mobile $60,000 for Failing to Secure Antennas
Nov 12, 2015
The FCC today proposed a fine of $60,000 against T-Mobile, which it says failed to adequately warn and prevent the public from stepping too close to cellular antennas. Specifically, T-Mobile didn't properly block off nor place signs near three antennas (2 AWS, 1 PCS) on a building in Phoenix, Ariz.
Google Says ARCore Will Push Augmented Reality to the Android Masses
Aug 29, 2017
Google today introduced ARCore, a software developer kit that will bring augmented reality to existing and future Android smartphones without the special hardware required by Project Tango. Google says it built ARCore on the foundation set by Project Tango, but has tweaked it in a way the will allow most devices to run AR apps and content.
won't the romulans be angry?
This just proves that science fiction is indeed a precurser to the reality of the future.
But they already have this technology.....
It was used in all of the predator movies, maybe i just dont undetstand.... 🤨
You are exactly right! I will explain it to you.
Unfortnately at the time the movie came out, the predator was ...
Cell-Phones VS. Predator
And also coming soon in the future....
Cars that drive themselves!
Small Pills that you can eat one of, and it takes the place of an entire meal!
i still play starcraft one. mainly just UMS for ww2 and diplo games though.
The I-Spy Phone
The large concrete buildings blocking signal would be made invisible?
Lawsuits from people driving/walking into buildings because they were invisible.
