Posted May 31, 2017

The new router, called Blue Cave, has already won the "Best Choice Golden Award" at Computex 2017.

Speaking to Mashable on the showfloor of the Computex technology show, an Asus spokesman explained that the antennas of the device are built into the roof, so you'll no longer have those ugly rods sticking out of your router. According to Asus, the hole serves as insulation between the route's internal antennas, which are on top part of the unit, and its latest Intel Wi-Fi chipset, which is on the bottom.

Asus' Blue Cave is an antenna-less Wi-Fi router with an eye-catching design. So, we can declare this newly launched router as "Antenna-less". Instead, there is a hole in the middle which Asus likes to call a "central aperture" that directs the signal.
