Anti-radiation phone chip withdrawn from sale
Protection called into question
Do you remember our E-Waves anti-radiation chip story from last week? Well, the retailer behind the device has since withdrawn it from sale because of doubts over its capabilities.
Belgian pharmacy chain Omega Pharma has since said that, following launch of the E-Waves chip, a “storm of protest broke out during which scientific proof of doctors and professors was brought into doubt”, according to a Reuters report.
The chip was supposedly able to neutralise a phone’s potentially harmful rays by blasting out “a quantum physical information wave” towards your brain when a mobile is in use.
In an effort to get its message across at launch, Omega Pharma released contrasting thermal imaging shots of someone’s head during a mobile phone conversation. One picture showed how the user’s brain heated up when using an ordinary phone, while another image showed that the person’s cranium was kept cooler, allegedly thanks to the chip’s protection.
Omega Pharma has since decided to repeat some tests on the chip, after which it’s promised to publish the results. It’s still uncertain whether E-Waves will make a return in the future or if it’ll be distributed by other firms elsewhere.
Shocked, I tell you!
Doubts? What is the world coming to!
Doubts they HAVE doctors and professors on this. Doubts the photos even have a handset in them. Doubts the scans could even resolve cellphone-caused thermal gradients. Doubts the ad writers know what information is, let alone the quantum kind. But about protection?
I am shocked! Shocked, I tell you!
Sorry what? Have I missed something here?
I never trustd the tinfoils hats - because as far as I can see they have no active component, and won't work as a faraday cage since they are not grounded, but this new device should be ok, after all it's got a chip in it.
Mine is the one with the wire wool lining.
Presumably Q would design one for Jame Bond
which projects Quantum of Solace Information Waves.
Yes, I know it isn't a very good joke, but then it wasn't a very good film.
