Anime-Themed Wi-Fi Routers

Asus Releases Limited-Edition Evangelion-themed WiFi Router

— March 14, 2023 — Pop Culture
Asus has released a new limited edition model for its ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro WiFi router designed in themes from the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The popular anime series was first widely popular in the 90s. The story was based on giant fighting mechanical robots set in a futuristic world battling against monsters called Angels. The anime series has collaborated with several brands since its popularity in the 90s.

The ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Pro WiFi Router contains the same technical specs. However, the design follows the colors of the EVA-01 mechanical robot from the anime series. Multiple antennas display purple and green colorways. The main body features the EVA-01 etching, and the dual-band router supports both 2.4GHz and 5Ghz frequency bands. Additionally, the router can reach up to 11,000Mbps speeds. The WiFi router is available for $3,499 in RMB.
