Kinetic Wi-Fi Router / Router

Kinetic Wi-Fi Router

Kinetic Wi-Fi Router can check the Internet transmission status via antenna movement. I designed a new router as a kinetic art object where conventional routers can bring interior effect. This design can intuitively visualize and identify the state of the Internet connection via the moving antenna. The antenna consists of two kinds, 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz. The user can connect and use the signal that he wishes to use among the two signals, and if the Internet transmission is smoothly carried out, the mobile will rotate in a stable manner.
