Cancer prevention thanks to Wi-Fi

Can you imagine how to encourage beach-lovers to avoid sunbathing for so long? How about making a barter? If you leave those dangerous sun rays, I will let you access to free Wi-Fi. Do you agree? Then, let’s see how it works.

Fighting cancer

This amazing and innovative proposal helps people to prevent cancer. Skin cancer is one of the most dangerous ones as it develops quickly. As everybody knows, sun is its main cause. The Peruvian Leage against Cancer has built a blue monolite in the beach that provides shadow as well as Wi-Fi.

But, how does it work?

Really easy. In the top of the monolite, a directionable antenna and a sun sensor make sure that people can access free Wi-Fi where there is shadow. Thanks to the sensor, the antenna shifts as the shadow does. Therefore, people must also move if they want to be connected.

This first Shadow Wi-Fi has been built in Peru, but other ones are expected to be built in San Francisco and New Zealand. Let’s hope that this little game helps people to be aware about the dangers of taking endless sunbathing sessions.

In the next video you can see how Shadow Wi-Fi works to prevent skin cancer:
