I want one.
The mess of wires and cables of this decade will soon look as primitive as leeches. Was thinking, for Internet I use a Mobitel 3G connection and a small modem. It’s a little box with a SIM card that lets me surf at decent YouTube speeds. My ideal product, however, is a 3G modem which is also a WiFi router. That is, it’s a magic box that gets Internet from the cell phone towers and transmits it via WiFi. As a thought, the thing could be completely wireless if it ran on solar power. You could just stick it on the windowsill and it would beam Internet to your house. Hot damn, it already exists, from Cradlepoint, it’s just missing solar power. The price point is already $180. The future is going to be sweet, but I suspect I will be too old and grumpy to enjoy it.
As another complete aside, Mercedes Benz is making all its cars petrol free by 2015. We figured out how to blow things up with great energy in the 1900s, perhaps the 2000s will make that knowledge more productive.
