The Faraday cage, named after its inventor Michael Faraday, is a device that protects electronic devices from electromagnetic radiation. The principle of operation of the device is the alternation of layers of conductive and non-conductive materials. This creates a kind of screen for any device inside and protects these devices from radiation. Despite the fact that the device seems complicated, you yourself can make a Faraday cage from aluminum foil. You can even make the version of the cage larger if you take a steel bin as a basis.
