Wifi Blocking Wallpaper — No Longer Can The Neighbours Freeload Off Your Wireless

French researchers at the Grenoble Institute of Technology have developed wallpaper that has been designed to confine wifi signals within your home. The wallpaper contains conductive ink containing silver crystals which prevents the wifi signal from penetrating the wallpaper, however unlike other signal blocking technologies, the wallpaper only blocks a select range of frequencies used by wireless routers making it possible for cell phones and other radio waves to pass through. 

 

Though the wifi blocking wallpaper is still in its prototype phase, Finnish based Ahlstrom has been granted exclusive rights to manufacture the wallpaper which should be hitting the shelves some time in 2013.
