Coffee shops have long struggled with issues of customers taking up table space while abusing access to the shop’s WiFi. Some shops no longer offer WiFi, while others ban phones and computers. Now a pop-up coffee shop in Vancouver has had a Faraday Cage incorporated into the café design to actually block wireless signals. The building designer for the Faraday Café stated that the material used is quite beautiful, reflecting light and shadow. The owner hopes that even those people glued to their electronic devices like the idea of no signals and see the shop as a refuge from the constant electronic activities. The event was only a temporary installation, but we may start seeing this sort of thing more regularly!
