Climate-Fi: a Wi Fi that solely works when it rains

Fashionable life revolves round staying related. So it may be irritating when trekking within the wilds when there isn’t any reception.

So, Swedish outside model Haglöfs is providing trekkers on the northern Swedish path, Kungsleden, in the midst 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 presents a way of safety. To this finish Wi-Fi has been positioned  alongside the rail and offers 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 individuals’s outside experiences much more gratifying, 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 an area climate station appearing as an on and off change. The more severe the downpour, the higher the sign.
