The key difference between a conventional antenna and the Cell Rover is the translation of electromagnetic waves into acoustic waves. “Their antenna resonates not based on the wavelength of light, but on the wavelength of sound,” explains Jacob Robinson, a Rice University neuroengineer who was not involved in the study. Like larger traditional antennas, the Cell Rover hits its resonant frequency when waves have a wavelength equal to its length—but the waves that stimulate this frequency are sound waves, which travel much more slowly than electromagnetic waves. Because the relationship between a wave’s wavelength and frequency also depends on its speed, sound waves and electromagnetic waves with the same wavelength will have different frequencies. In other words, the external magnetic field can signal the Cell Rover using waves with frequencies outside the harmful microwave range. “It’s a clever approach,” Robinson says.
