Wallpaper that makes rooms quieter and more internet-secure

Wireless internet is extremely convenient.  With the right router, you can be anywhere in your house and be on the internet on a mobile device.  the only downfall is that sometimes, the signal can be hacked into and you are spending hard earned dollars to give free internet to your neighbors, and you don’t even know it.  Researchers at France’s Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble have worked with the Centre Technique du Papier to develop Wi-Fi-blocking wallpaper.

Coined, “metapaper”, their studies claim to selectively filter, reduce or reflect electromagnetic waves.  Wallpaper that doesn’t only protect your walls, but also protects your health, equipment and data.

Metapaper not only protects against intruders stealing Wi-Fi from homes, but it also ensures that signals inside a building are more secure and stronger.  Some huge benefits include data security for companies or people that need dependable Wi-Fi. The wallpaper can also be used to create quieter spaces for places like hospitals and movie theaters.

Would you be willing to add wallpaper to your house that will protect your Wi-Fi?
