For some reason, the need to connect to a WiFi or network for assistance always occurs at the most inopportune moments. Maybe it’s a testament to your adventurous nature or maybe you need to work on your karma. Whatever the case, goTenna Mesh will ensure that whenever that need arises, you won’t be left in a dead zone.

In short, the goTenna Mesh is the first 100 percent off-the-grid, long-range consumer mesh network. Simply pair the Bluetooth device with your smartphone to facilitate communication with other mesh users that will only grow stronger and increase in range as the user base increases. You can send messages, share locations, or chat privately while still using the mesh network. It sends messages via a 1-watt UHF radio transmission that doesn’t require towers, routers, or satellites to function. Typical ranges will be up to three miles in open terrain and up to one mile in say a congested forest in the mountains. However, as previously stated, the range will increase alongside an increase user base. It’s the perfect option for outdoor excursions, international travel, crowded events where service is slow, or emergency situations. It’s available now for reservation on Kickstarter and a single pair is slated to retail at $179. [Purchase]
