Wave Bubble illo

Yeah, we know that cellphone jammers—however politically gauche—are very in right now, so exactly what're the academic implications of MIT student Limor Fried's thesis project, the Wave Bubble? Well, it's not much more than a low-power jammer that disrupts radio transmissions about 6 feet in all directions—certainly nothing we've never seen or heard of before—but you've got to admire its DIYness. Well, that and the MIT name associated with it, which is about the only thing that makes it stand out from any other jammers out there.
