This year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) provided the venue with several amazing, life-improving technologies the world has yet to experience.

Aside from the newest and most up-to-date smartphones, tablets and laptops, the event also featured other devices, including one that promises to enhance a person's cellular signal, even inside closed quarters: WeBoost's Eqo.

According to Techno Buffalo contributor Jacob Kleinman, the company formerly known as Wilson Electronics, built the "Faraday Cage," a room-sized area where cellular reception is dropped to zero during the event.

Having attended the event himself, Kleinman described his experience in the Faraday Cage.

"Last week, with CES in full swing, my phone became an endless stream of beeps and buzzes as emails continuously flooded my inbox, but for one brief moment I found peace. In the middle of the show floor WeBoost created an oasis free of notifications to show off its latest product," he wrote.

This product called "Eqo" is a cellular signal booster that could allegedly enhance service inside any house up to as much as 32 times.

"Dropped calls and slow data are generally caused by three things: distance from a cell tower, building materials in your home or office, or obstruction from objects such as trees, topography, and buildings," WeBoost's official website explained.

The company further explained how it enhances the cellular reception inside closed quarters by reaching out to the network's cell tower before amplifying and sending it to the antenna installed inside the establishment.

After that, the antenna "broadcasts" the signal in the four corners of the home, much like an echo, thereby improving cell service of mobile phone users in the vicinity.

This device is expected to launch in March with a price tag of $349.99, Techno Buffalo reported.

WeBoost also highlighted some of the reasons why users should go for Eqo such as having to pay no monthly charges, not requiring any Internet connection, and accessibility to multiple users no matter what carrier they use.

It can also be installed and used easily, since it takes less than a minute to set up.

The best part is that Eqo can also "bring to life" any dead spot similar to the Faraday Cage.

While all of these offers may be pleasing to most, Kleinman of Techno Buffalo pointed out that AT&T's MicroCells offer a wider range that can cover as much as 5,000 square feet, while WeBoost's Eqo only covers up to 1,200 square feet or one to two rooms.
