The Spray On Antenna?

Lower Energy Consumption, Better Range

"Chamtech Enterprises is hoping to make signal issues a thing of the past with a new form of spray on antennathe company demonstrated this week at Google's Solve for X conference. Chamtech's co-founder Anthony Sutera explains the idea in a video, claiming that the technology -- discovered by accident -- will allow wireless signal transmission at greater distances with a fraction of the energy consumption. It also could eliminate the need for massive and ugly cell towers, given it can be applied to everyday objects like buildings, rocks, and trees (they claim to have sent a VHF signal up to 14 miles via a tree). At the very least, it could be a mean way to pick on any locals claiming to have wirelesselectrosensitivity."
