Protect Your Wi Fi Connection With Paint

Worried about people ripping off your wireless connection? EM-SEC Technologies has announced a new wireless blocking paint, which is intended to safeguard businesses and government facilities from wireless attacks. Apparently, one coat of this paint will create an "electromagnetic fortress" by preventing hackers from receiving signals. The paint is also said to block mobile phones, which could be a great tool for movie theaters to combat those annoying 'middle of the movie' phone calls.

If this paint can safeguard wifi signals within the home, could it be used to block them out as well? I've been particularly worried about the long term effects of living in a house, office and even city where wifi signals roam all day long. I think it would be great for children's bedrooms and it could certainly be useful for someone like Debbie Bird, who is a woman allergic to cell phones and electromagnetic fields. Can you imagine?

It's not as if the paint on your walls is all that natural either...unless you purposely buy eco-friendly paints. Maggie Mae, I would suspect that if this prevents your wifi network from leaking through the walls, it's going to put a dent on the roam-ability of your wireless phones as well. I wonder if it blocks the frequencies that normal AM/FM radios work on also...

I have a feeling this would mess more things up then it would help in the longterm. I mean, what can the stuff be made of? I would guess nothing that natural.
