Soyntec Wiffinder Bags Feature (You Guessed It) Built-in Wi-Fi Detectors

By Andrew Liszewski

Apparently there’s still a market for Wi-Fi detectors, so much so that a company called Soyntec actually builds them into the laptop bags and backpacks in their Wiffinder line. A small LCD on the outside of the bags usually shows just the current time, but a push of a button will tell you if there are any Wi-Fi networks nearby, and their signal strength. It doesn’t seem to indicate whether or not the Wi-Fi signals are encrypted, which is a pretty vital piece of info, so I’ll let you make the call on whether or not this feature makes the ~$47 bags worthwhile.

    I'd like a wifi detector watch!

    I was concerned about if it operates all the time or is turned on and off. How do you recharge it? Or does it take batteries?
