What is AdTrap?
Simply put, 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.
One of the great things about AdTrap is that it’s browser independent and works with any of your connected WiFi devices. The possibilities are endless here; Android, Apple TV, Boxee, Google TV, tablets and phones. AdTrap is self configuring and self updating. You can also hookup AdTrap directly between your computer and the wall/switch (work, hotel, conference room), again zero configuration. Just plug it in, sit back and enjoy an ad free internet experience!

We are ready to manufacture!
AdTrap has been designed and prototyped in Palo Alto, California and we plan to manufacture via a trusted partner, with operations based in Redwood City, California. We are using as many standard components as possible. These components have undergone testing for about 7 months. We are also very excited about the development of the software “the heart” of this project and a custom ABS case for our PCB. We are finalizing designs for the best price. AdTrap will also have a customizable LED light emitting a soft glow.
The software, hardware and industrial designs are done and we are already setting up for manufacturing. We’ve made it pretty far on our own. But we need you! You have to have AdTrap to truly appreciate how much better, faster and smoother the internet is without ads.
