Trendy life revolves round staying related. So it may be irritating when trekking within the wilds when there isn’t a reception.
So, Swedish outside model Haglöfs is providing trekkers on the northern Swedish path, Kungsleden, in the course of the Swedish wilderness, free Wi-Fi. However there’s a catch – it solely works when it rains.
The climate in Northern Sweden can get fairly tough, as can the terrain, and so a good Wi-Fi connection affords a way of safety. To this finish Wi-Fi has been positioned alongside the rail and provides trekkers the chance to go surfing in locations the place there usually isn’t any connectivity in any respect.
“With this initiative, we hope to make folks’s outside experiences much more pleasurable, even when it’s pouring down”, says Peter Fabrin, CEO at Haglöfs.
The Wi-Fi connection is pushed by photo voltaic panels, and is linked to a neighborhood climate station appearing as an on and off change. The more serious the downpour, the higher the sign.
