[citation][nom]GhostMonkey[/nom]You guys know that wireless is 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz for the newer stuff right? The "old" paint that will block signals below 50 GHz is way more then enough....[/citation]
Yea, that stuff has blocked wifi for some time now. A bit off on that part I think.
Wouldn't this be counter-intuitive unless you only painted the outside of your house or the walls that line the outside? Else you'd just be trapping the signal from the router into a single room in your house, no?

well.. once youve got wifi its hard do go back. its a little counter productive if you already have a router set up. but the cellphone question is a good one.
So now I need my building inspector to check the paint in the house to make sure I can recieve radio, TV, cell phone, etc. signals before moving in huh? It's not like you can just paint over to undo the previous changes. This idea sucks for residential use.
Or how about you live in a condo and all the neighbors above, below, left, right, and opposite do this? Then you are screwed.
Now for commercial applications, this may have some merit, as long as landlines are made easily accessible in case of emergency.
[citation][nom]ira176[/nom]What about your cell phones or home wireless phones?[/citation]
wireless phones connect to a reciever that is indoors, so that isnt a problem.. and another problem is that you cant get rid of the paint as easily as you put it on..

cell phones operate below wifi frequencies, otherwise their signal wouldn't have the penetration power that it does...so they'd be blocked too.
Not only that, but TV and radio signals using antennas to receive will not pass through.
The positive side is that you'll have a room 'free' of the millions of radiation that flows through the air every second.
It should be able to reduce the risk of cancer, but then again, perhaps the paint itself is more cancerous than the radiowaves.
I wished they would create this product as 'transparent paint', so I won't need to redo my whole house due to the inavailability of color; and perhaps I could just paint part of a wall where my router is placed.
Sometimes a small shielding would be enough to stop neighbors from leeching.
