A Norwegian company has developed a sneaky device capable of turning off all mobile phones within a specified range.
Developed by Ice International, the gadget has received much interest from the aviation industry for its potential as a safety tool. Apparently over 10 per cent of passengers still fly with their mobiles switched on.
The device consists of an antenna which sends a signal to switch off the phones. It is still in testing but could be available as early as next spring.
