First, be warned.  This page is probably NSFW.  There are ads on the page showing scantily clad women wanting to be your next girlfriend.  And scrolling down the video list it looks like at least one video on the site probably would be NSFW.

Boost Car Remote With Your Skull

This video (supposedly) shows how to boost the signal of your car’s keyless entry remote.  Just point it under your chin, have your mouth open a little bit and the signal is (supposedly) amplified through your oral cavity to give you a greater range.

Anyone got their keyless entry remote that wants to go try it?

The body is a poor conductor/amplifier of radio waves, or hasn’t anyone ever owned a TV antenna before?  Just getting near the thing made the reception drop.

Sounds dubious, but if I remember, I’ll try it later. My parking space is a bit of a walk from my front door and even though I have a clear line of vision from my door, the stupid thing never opens it until I get about halfway there. Meanwhile my daughter can somehow manage to trigger the panic button (makes the horn beep incessantly) from inside the house. She always has it in her mouth, so maybe there is something to it.

ETA: She manages to pop the trunk from inside the house too. Keys are always placed out of reach as a result.

My old roommate bought a VW and the guy told him it would double the range. He said the jaw bone works as an antenna. I told him he was full of it. We tried it and didn’t notice a difference or not a significant one.

My remote car unlocking system is handing the keys to somebody else and telling them to go to my car and unlock the doors. . .

WARNING THE NEXT PAGE IS COMPLETELY SFW, NOTHING TO SEE, NOTHING TO STARE AT, JUST A VIDEO CLIP OF A BBC PRESENTER POINTING AT SOME POINT DURING THE PRESENTATION A REMOTE CONTROL TO HIS HEAD. DO NOT BE ALARMED! NOBODY GETS HURT AND THERE A NO TITS OR TWATS WHATSOEVER TO SEE! YOU CAN SHOW THIS TO YOUR KIDS BECAUSE EVEN THE LANGUAGE IS OK!!

The BBC clip of Clarkson putting the remote in a kind of a suicidal way to his head proving it works:

It’s all true!  I waved my keys at my car from a mere five feet away, and it didn’t unlock.  Then I held the keys up by my head and waved them from fifty feet away, and the car didn’t unlock!  I got equal results from ten times the distance away!!!

big surprise
