Super Cool Physics Toys


Spending time outdoors can be a lot of fun. But what if your phone doesn’t have a good reception where you are? Wouldn’t you still want to stay in touch with your friends? goTenna can help. It pairs wirelessly with your smartphone and lets you text and share your location with anyone who has the device if you don’t get any service. Think about how helpful that can be in certain situations.

With goTenna, you can go off-grid without getting lost. Why rely on an unreliable cell phone service when goTenna can handle the job! This lets you and your friends create your own network to chat and stay in touch. In addition, you can send encrypted messages. The device is compatible with iOS and Android devices.

Your phone needs to be within 20 feet of the device to work (optimal distance). goTenna’s range can go up to 50 miles (depending on various factors). Here are a few more interesting facts about the device:

  • Flash memory for 1000’s of messages
