Cellphone-blocking wallpaper

wallpaperIt would be nice if moviegoers would just silence their cell phones at will, but alas we all know no matter how many friendly reminders there are, movies are constantly interrupted with blaring ringtones. Strong-arming cell phone users is one way to go, and British company QinetiQ (formerly of the British Ministry of Defense) has been able to large-scale manufacture cell phone blocking wallpaper, called Frequency-Selective "Wallpaper" Screens, FSS. It looks somewhat discreet if you like a busy metallic grid pattern, and creates "Quiet Zones" for the chosen environment. Let's just hope it matches that WiFi-blocking wallpaper.
