New laptop cases from Soyntec can detect open wireless signals


Wifi Bag

There’s nothing worse when you’re on the road and you’re in desperate need of WiFi access. Those are always the times where you can’t ever seem to find an open network. Sure, you can keep breaking out your laptop to check for one, or even get one of those little WiFi detection gadgets and walk around looking like a true nerd, but neither of those options is very appealing. With a Soyntec Wiffinder bag you’ll never have to worry about it again.

These bags look like your average laptop cases, and they come in a variety of styles like backpacks, shoulder strap bags and rolling suitcases. The difference is the little display that lets you know if an open connection is nearby, and how strong the signal is. Prices range from around $60 on up to $100 depending on the style you choose. I’ve been looking for a new bag anyway, I might just have to consider one of these.

I’d want this if the wifi detector was a bit more sophisticated, but wifi detectors that fail to tell you whether the network is secured or not aren’t all that useful.

[…] Instead of whipping out your notebook and booting it up just to find an available WiFi signal, why not take the easier route of using your iPhone or other WiFi-capable portable device? Well there is an even easier way now with the WiFi Signal Finder Pen. All you need to do is press the switch and let the LED light flash, where it will then pick up any WiFi signal in the vicinity. There is a working range of up to 50m outdoors and 30m indoors. Too bad it doesn’t pick up draft-N networks, nor is it capable of letting you know whether there is WEP encryption or not. The WiFi Signal Finder Pen will retail for $19.90 a pop. Well, at least you can use it to put down your John Hancock. Check out other WiFi signal finders we have covered in the past here. […]
