Wired | A Satellite Dish Bringing Info to the World's Dead Zones

Wired reporter Liz Stinson recently spoke with our Head of Industrial Design, Geoff Baldwin, about the design inspiration behind our portable satellite prototype for Outernet, the Chicago-based startup on a mission to provide free web access to people around the world.

The end result was a foldable 24" satellite, inspired by a vegetable steamer.

The first thing you do when someone asks if you’ll design a satellite dish for them is say, 'yes.'
