A start-up called Chamtech Enteprises (sic) has an answer to the problems of poor cellphone reception and other shortcomings of traditional antennas…The company has developed a spray-on antenna that it says is more lightweight, energy-efficient and effective than the old-school version…The Sandy, Utah-based start-up’s nanotechnology, unveiled last week at Google’s inaugural Solve For X gathering, can be painted onto a tree, a wall, the ground or even the back of a soldier, enabling a more portable, lightweight way to get reception for a variety of uses.
It goes on to say:
Traditional antennas—the kind that receive radio and TV signals—work OK, but they’re beset by problems, Spencer [Chamtech chief technology officer...Dan] said. They suck up energy, drain battery life and get too hot. They don’t send or receive signals as far or as clearly as users would like. They don’t work well under water.
Personally, I find these claims to be hilarious. Or, am I missing something?
