Sick of Ads on the Internet? New AdTrap Promises to Remove All Advertising from Your Internet Connection

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

 

If you are sick of seeing advertising on the Internet (and yes, we realize that you will be seeing some ads with this very article – oh, the irony – but that’s how we are able to offer this free service), then a couple of enterprising entrepeneurs have a deal for you. Called the AdTrap, and the brainchild of Chad Russell, Charles Butkus, and Arlene Vazquez-Lopez, of Bluepoint Security, this device promises to remove all Internet advertising for all of your wifi-enabled devices.

According to the Kickstarter campaign for AdTrap, “AdTrap is a small, zero configuration device that removes ads from your internet connection before they reach any of your home devices. Video, music streams and mobile apps and websites, all ad free.”

The device sits between your Internet router and your devices, which is why one device can scrub all the ads – because it is scrubbing the ads before whatever you are viewing hits your device.

As of the time of the writing of this article, and in less than a week, Ad-Trap’s Kickstarter campaign has more than 700 backers, and has raised nearly $80,000 (their goal is $150,000). Clearly a lot of people would like to get rid of Internet ads from their Internet experience.

Ad-Trap is expected to start shipping in February of 2013. If you’re interested in following, or funding, this device, you can check out Ad-Trap’s Kickstarter campaign here.
