A Tiny Satellite Dish That Brings Info to the World's Dead Zones

The next step: "Feign confidence," jokes Geoff Baldwin. Baldwin is head of industrial design at Code and Theory, a creative agency best known for revamping media websites for the likes of the Los Angeles Times and Vanity Fair France as well developing marketing programs for Burger King and Dr Pepper. Two years ago the studio introduced an industrial design branch and brought Baldwin over from Ideo to head it up.

The dish in question was designed for Outernet, a startup looking to use satellites to broadcast simple information to the entire planet the way channels might be broadcast to the flat screen TV in your living room. The funny thing about building satellite dishes is that they're both simple and complex. If you want, you can rig up your own dish for less than it costs to pay for a month of cable.
