Mesh networks


Locust World has developed the software and hardware to create mesh networks on the cheap (about $400 per box). This is potentially big. A mesh network allows one to extend a wireless network indefinitely — a signal will hop from one box to the next, until eventually finding one that’s got a landline connection. Obviously traffic could get backed up, but this makes all kinds of interesting things possible. via BoingBoing.

  1. Geeks are nothing if not redundant: “mesh network” heh.

    Cool stuff. This would be great for wireless distributed applications over a large corporate campus, factory floor, etc.
