When Melbourne Wireless was featured on TV

I caught up with a few of the Melbourne Wireless original members a few weeks ago, and while we were reminiscing, I was reminded about the Today Show feature article we helped Ms Megabyte put together on Wireless. There was a little creative license, but the video conferencing and gaming was done via wireless links – and we did actually video conference to a car – although it was parked at the time 🙂

I’ve been trying to get an accurate date for when this aired – best I can tell was around March 2003. Here it is in all its glory:



It brought back a ton of memories of making wifi antennas out of pringles cans. Good times 🙂

  1. So, I’ve never heard about any of this before but I found the video interesting. For anyone who went looking for the Ms. Megabyte website mentioned at the end of the video, you can still see it in all its glory on the Internet Archive.
