Mega Wi-Fi access point sucks up bandwidth from open networks

I don’t know if this is a joke but it’s a device whose time has come. The Slurpr, mother of all wardrive boxes, as its creators call it, connects to all available networks and combines their bandwidth to give you a lot of juice.

Made in Amsterdam and available for 999 EUR, excluding VAT and shipping.

I am not crazy about the design. It looks like an electronic porcupine. Morever, I can’t put it in a small handbag to carry around when I’m traveling and looking for a Wi-Fi connection.

Mark Hoekstra says in his blog: “At this moment I can see 8 different signals. Some are closed networks but most are open and available. I can only connect to one at a time so I tend to just pick the one with the best signal. But what if I could connect to all the networks at the same time and combine their bandwith? Yeah, that is what I need! A big, fat access point with a large antenna and a bunch of Wi-Fi cards that automatically connect to the strongest signals it can pick up. Then it would combine all these signals into one FreeLoading Broadband Canal for me to use.”
