Every wonder why your Nokia phone gets more bars of service than all your friends phones? It’s thanks to “Sam” that rubber head you see in the picture above. He lives Two floors below ground level at Nokia Research Center’s Ruoholahti HQ.
Sam sits inside a circle clutching his handset to his head in the anechoic (echo-free) chamber (Pictured Above) which eliminates any interference or stray signals.
At of a cost of about 4000USD a square metre Sam’s room is not cheap however it is worth every penny to me when I get service in areas where no one else does.
