Submission + - Take Your Home Internet With You

Nighttime writes: How do you use the Internet when you're in an area with no 3G or wi-fi signal. Well, a start-up on Indiegogo appears to have the answer, the WiFiEx. It's a USB device you plug into your home computer and charge it up with Internet. When you're out and about you can then use the Internet charge stored on the device; the more you've charged it, the longer you get. So far they've raised over US$2000 and the project has 9 days left to part fools from their money.
