hField WiFire: Extending Wi-Fi Sans the Pringles Cantenna

It looks like somebody has took notice of the need to extend wi-fi signals and did something about it. It used to be that the only solution to the problem of extending wi-fi access to beyond the 100 ft. range is to use a Pringles cantenna but a startup company called hField has now released their Wi-Fire wi-fi range extender.

The Wi-Fire is a directional antenna that can be attached to any computer through the USB port. To get a signal, the user must point the antenna towards the nearest wi-fi access point.
