Most WiFi routers are flat boxes with flashing lights that you setup, stash under your desk and mostly forget about except for grumbling about dead spots when you’re trying to surf from your back porch or your attic gadget cave. AmpliFi from Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. is a 802.11AC plug-and-play, multi-radio plug and play system that you will not want to hide. You’ll want it to be front and center because it not only looks great with its cube shape and glowing LED base, but it houses an advanced antenna design and a color touch screen display that is constantly updating to show your network speed. The AmpliFi system includes the router base and two wireless extenders that plug into an open wall socket to create a mesh network throughout your house that puts an end to dead spots and blankets your home with WiFi coverage. Signal strength LEDs are integrated into the wireless extender design to help you position them for the best network performance possible. AmpliFi is currently available for pre-order with prices that start at $199 and go up to $349, with shipping is scheduled for this summer. You can find more info at AmpliFi.com
