CES is always full of surprises. Sometimes it's a wild television technology. Other times it's a crazy motorized skateboard. And sometimes it's a Wi-Fi router that looks like it wants to take off, join an armada of alien spaceships, and nuke the planet from orbit because that's the only way to be sure.
The router in question is the D-Link AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router, and make no mistake: as these things go it's more than solid. Six antennas, support for the latest 802.11 protocols, and speeds up to 3.2Gbps. And this is just one of D-Link's new Ultra series (it'll be available on Newegg tomorrow for $309.99).
But mostly it just looks bonkers. Think about it. Sitting on the corner of your desk. Plotting. Scheming. Biding its time. Waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that there really is a wireless router that would want to murder your entire family before diving through a transdimensional wormhole to plot the demise of an entire civilization.
But if there was, this would be it.
