WiFi Lamppost It has to be a flop. Moving internet users away from the comfort and warmth of a WiFi coffee shop? And getting them to stand next to a lamp post??

What am I blathering on about? Well a company based in Scotland have designed ‘smart lampposts‘ that could provide internet access. Apparently the idea will combine solar energy and WiFi wireless internet access.

Being based in Edinburgh I’m all for Scottish innovations, but the idea will be piloted in Dundee. The only city where you have to pay to leave.

But it could be a good idea. Enabling more users to get online in more accessible locations. Not as good an innovation as paper-thin TV’s, but I wish the project all the best.
