Phoebus MB6000 – Walk and Connect Wirelessly Like An Egyptian

James Allan Brady - Jul 27, 2007

First the facts, its shaped like a pyramid, but no one is buried inside. Second the technical specs, 802.11b/g WiFi router powered by your 3G card.

The cost is $289 and it appears to be available now, which means if you are going to be in Bumfuct, Egypt any time soon and need an internet connection for more than just yourself, here is your solution. Also, as I said, it looks like a high tech pyramid, so it won’t have to be hidden away due to its hideousness, you can put it front and center on the table.

When I first saw this, I started thinking of places where this would come in handy, I couldn’t think of many, but as I am going camping today, that one immediately came to mind. Other possibilities would be at mobile project sites like digs or maybe law enforcement operations, but they probably have a far better (read: pricier) solution.
