Samsung Fly-Fy

Samsung has come up with a genius idea which makes used of all those annoying pigeons while improving internet access in public spaces. It's called Fly-Fy and sees micro-router packs attached to London pigeons. Samsung says the 'lightweight, water-resistant and do not impede the pigeon’s normal flying action'.Tests show that where more than 50 birds are gathered, signal strength is better than 4G.

Tim Verhoeven, Project Director, Samsung Innovation Labs explained: "This is about thinking laterally - using one nuisance, pigeons, to fix another, a lack of Wi-Fi. It is a breakthrough of sorts but of course pigeons have always been at the forefront of mobile communications technology. From the sixth century BC, pigeons have been used as the fastest and most reliable way to send messages over great distances. As you're never far from a pigeon in London, we think this idea could really take off."
