Routers are an indispensable piece of equipment in the home, but they’re often one of the most feared. Think about it. When was the las time you changed your WiFi password? Or changed any of the settings? When did you last type 192.168.0.1 or something like that in your browser bar? “Never” is the answer many of you will give, and that’s just because routers aren’t that easy to use. The Almond router from Securifi hopes to change all that with the inclusion of an LCD touchscreen on its body. Hardware wise, we’re looking at a typical router: 802.11b/g/n, 300Mbps MIMO, 100m range, etc. But it’s the touchscreen UI that makes the Almond stand out; it’ll allow you to configure everything right on your device with a few simple finger presses.
The Almond should hit the market in the spring of this year for under $70.
