When disaster strikes, one of the first victims is often the communications system. With cell towers down, power out and phone lines down, even areas within the developed world can become completely isolated, as we saw with Hurricane Sandy. A novel technology addresses this problem in ways you can’t imagine. Anthony Sutera of nCap has developed a revolutionary technology that allows users to literally spray on an antenna so that the side of a building or a tree can instantly become part of a pop up network to facilitate communications. Of course, the technology still requires a connection to the outside world, but once established that connection can be shared immediately in a neighborhood that has been devastated by a storm or earthquake, allowing emergency responders to communicate, coordinate and care for victims.
