Asus Blue Cave antenna-less Wi-Fi router launched at Computex 2017


Launched at Computex 2017, the Asus Blue Cave is an AC2600 dual-band Wi-Fi router that's supposed to deliver an incredible Wi-fi experience at home.

The price? $180 when it launches, but Asus did not specify any availability details. Asus also announced new VivoBook Pro that packs Intel's seventh-generation processors and comes loaded with discrete graphics in the form of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1050. Most of the people love to explore different types of videos online from YouTube, NetFlix and many other such places and this new Asus Blue Cave delivers smooth 4K UHD video streaming with lag-free gaming and much more. It does have a few smarts, though, namely a security solution powered by Trend Micro (it's called Asus AiProtection), and an app that allows you to monitor usage per user, network activity, security reports, and restrict apps.

The company also launched Blue Cave at the conference, "an elegantly designed AC2600-class dual-band Smart Wi-Fi router that combines superb performance, commercial-grade security and family-friendly features with stylish good looks".

No, no one blew a hole through the Asus Blue Cave router.

Apart from this, the new Asus Blue Cave router comes along with easy to use connection to smartphones and tablets without the use of a PC. But really and truly, we're all here for that "unique and attractive central aperture that is bathed in gentle blue light". It also supports IFTTT for automated tasks in smart homes. However, it's not just for style, but the hole directs the signal. And the app will even send out notifications if it detects a potential hack.
