Wireless in Afghanistan

4 03 2010

Ok, I know what you’re thinking: “that does not look like my wireless router.” I thought it was some kind of satellite tv antennae designed by my brethren from back home in GA on first glance, but no, it’s actually a homespun wireless internet router. Yep, for reals. Apparently a group of volunteers from MIT have been working in Afghanistan to create a wireless network built entirely out of scavenged junk. And apparently it’s working really well. They call it ‘FabFi’, which is awesome.

I found this little gem on BoinBoing this am, and the full write up is there.
