Swiss designer Florian Kräutli presents here Human Antenna carpet. The white carpet is interwoven with a conductive thread, that pick up radio waves received by the persons standing on it. The person standing on the carpet is basically turned into a human antenna. By walking across the carpet, it is possible to tune in different radio frequencies.

See here own presentation video:

More pictures available on her website:

By the look of the video, the product might not be that useful in everyday life, however I like the idea about using the human body to replace something as ugly as an antenna.
