In Pictures: Most wild, wacky and wonderful Wi-Fi installations

RF’s most odd, unusual, cool, intriguing network applications for work, fashion, health and play

Hundreds of sensors on Oracle Team USA’s race boats, prepping for next year’s defense of the America’s Cup, pass data on telemetry, wind and load data to an onboard server for processing. A Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex 7982 802.11n access point carries the information to fixed and wearable displays, guiding real-time decisions on trimming sails to maximize the boat’s speed. When the boat docks, the data are offloaded via a Ruckus wireless mesh link for analysis at the team’s base in San Francisco Bay.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
