British defence contractor BAE Systems has developed a stealth wallpaper designed to stop electronic eavesdropping on Wi-Fi networks.
The company has produced panels designed to prevent outsiders from listening in on companies’ Wi-Fi traffic but let other traffic through, including radio and mobile phone signals.
