My family recently bought a smart tv and to boost the wifi signal I made this. It is made with household items. Please vote this into the Weekend project contest!
Step 1: Gather Materials
You need : a wooden skewer, can, scissors, aluminum foil, electrical tape, and that's it!!
Step 2: Prepare Skewer and Can
Cut the skewer in half and keep both halves.
Cut the can about an inch from the top, and keep the top part. I taped the sharp edge so no one would get cut
Step 3: Fold Foil
Fold the foil to about double the width and the length of a dollar bill.
Step 4: Tape Together
Tape one half of the skewer lengthwise on the foil. Then tape the other half vertical so it looks like a sail. Then tape the whole thing onto the can with the bottom of the top facing up.
Step 5: Place and You're Done!
Place it so it will boost the signal to the desired direction. You're done!
