Texting on the Tube made possible? Teenage inventor builds low-frequency radio for underground communications
We’ve all been there; on the phone, on the verge of breaking the meaning of life during the daily commute when your train hits a tunnel and your signal cuts out. We can send a man to the moon, but we still cant send an SMS from on the Tube.
But all that may be about to change thanks to wunder-kid Alexander Kendrick. While most 16 year olds are out learning the hard way the shortcomings of binge drinking, the teenage inventor has spent his spare time creating a revolutionary low-frequency radio that can send text messages from deep underground.
It’s been tested as deep as the depths of a 946 foot cave, and looks set to become an essential tool for rescuers searching for caving enthusiasts who may have been a little too adventurous for their own good.
My wasted youth just flashed before my eyes.
