Soon, you may be able to correct your cell phone's signal problems by spraying on an antenna. Researchers at the military technology firm Chamtech have developed a special aerosol spray that can essentially add an antenna to whatever it's sprayed on and improve the network coverage in the area. The spray essentially covers a surface with thousands of nanocapacitors. Those nanocapacitors align themselves on the surface, and create a wireless antenna for the devices located in the area.

The giant camera is being built by photographer Dennis Manarchy as part of his “Vanishing Cultures” project. For the project, Manarchy plans to travel to all 50 states with a view to creating a collection of photos and stories that “celebrates the full cycle of the American experience.” Read More
