Brettchenweben 2.4GHZ

2.4 GHz Boardweaving is based on the idea of manually producing a copper fabric that can shield various electromagnetic wave bands.

WiFi and cell phone signals are propagated on the 2.4 GHz wavelength.

When the copper wire and the fabric’s density have a certain relationship to the wavelength, it’s possible to fend off these signals.

The advantage of this technique is that a loom isn’t needed. The device can be worn on the body—for instance, attached to a belt.

We can foil the constant geo-location of the chips installed in portable devices by entangling them in the woven copper band.
