Wi-Fi Shielding Paint
I have no idea how well this works, but it's a clever idea. From Information Week:
Force Field Wireless makes three products that it says can dramatically reduce the leakage of wireless signals from a room or building.
One odd side-point from the article:
Force Field has been trying to interest the Department of Homeland Security, but discussions are ongoing, Wray says. "Ironically, we have had foreign governments contact us--from the Middle East. Kind of scary." Wray says he won't sell to them.
I wonder what's so scary about selling metal paint to a Middle East government. Maybe the company thinks they will use the paint to "cover up" their misdeeds or poison political prisoners?
