Google OnHub / Wireless router

Google’s OnHub sets a new standard in router design. With an elegantly tapered cylindrical shape and absolute simplicity, it is prominently positioned in the home as a connected hub. Under this graceful skin is an array of 13 antennas arranged in a circle, which provides ideal wireless signal performance. A gap between the inner and outer shells allows heat to escape and a status light to glow from within. OnHub is very easy to use ˗ just plug it in and pair it to the Google On app on your smartphone to calibrate and optimize its performance. OnHub is offered in many colors and materials including natural bamboo.
