Smartie pants use #WirelessArmour

Wireless Armour (2)Described by Sir Richard Branson as “underpants for superheroes”, a British scientist has unveiled Wireless Armour, a new line of ‘smart, wearable tech’ underwear which aims to protect male fertility by using a mesh of pure silver woven into fabric to shield against 99.9% of harmful electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted by Wi-Fi devices including smartphones and laptops.

It is estimated that 70 million couples are affected by infertility worldwide (1). Male fertility has declined in recent years (2) and this has been attributed to exposure to environmental factors including electromagnetic radiation emitted by Wi-Fi enabled devices such as smartphones and laptops which have been shown in clinical studies to lower sperm count and motility in men (3). In 2014 the University of Exeter conducted a comprehensive review of all the data from previous studies investigating the link between EMR and sperm damage the and the analysis indicated a negative associations between mobile phone exposure on sperm viability and motility (4). Whilst the findings are not 100% conclusive it does show a strong correlation between EMR exposure and lower sperm health. In one study in vitro sperm motility dropped to 49% and viability to 52% after just one hour of exposure to radiation emitted by a mobile phone (5). Additionally, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has assigned EMR as possibly carcinogenic to humans, in the category 2B, the same category as petrol exhaust fumes and other pollutants (6).

“Like so many people, my smartphone and laptop use has increased dramatically in recent years which made me realise that I was exposing myself to large amounts of electromagnetic radiation, mostly centred on my groin” says London scientist and Wireless Armour inventor, Joseph Perkins. “With my Physics background I knew there must be a way to shield from electromagnetic radiation using a simple solution. Wireless Armour has been tested by an industry leader in wireless shielding and the results show that our fabric shields against 99.9% of the radiation emitted between 100MHz to 2.6GHz. Put simply, this covers the entire range of radiation emitted by wireless devices, from voice and text through to 4G and Wi-Fi, almost everything is blocked.”

How Wireless Armour works

  • Wireless Armour has a mesh of pure silver woven into the fabric which creates an unbroken shield
  • The mesh disrupts the flow of electromagnetic radiation due to Silver being a conductor of electricity
  • The electromagnetic radiation becomes distributed evenly around the silver mesh and stops the electromagnetic radiation from flowing through it
  • A UK electromagnetic testing company showed that Wireless Armour’s unique fabric RadiaTex provides 99.9% shielding from electromagnetic radiation
  • The silver is weaved into the cotton to produce an extremely flexible soft fabric which lengthens the lifetime of Wireless Armour by increasing its strength
  • The silver fibres (about 35% of the total fabric) in Wireless Armour are highly anti-microbial, which means they increase hygiene by preventing the spread of bacteria and other microbes that cause smells

Wireless Armour retails between £24 – £35 and can be purchased here

MiHome works to cut your household bills

MIHO029As energy prices rise and the complexity of home heating controls increases, homeowners will welcome an entirely new range of easy-to-use energy saving products that could help to reduce energy bills by as much as 20%1 in a simple yet effective way. Makers of superior energy saving products and devices, Energenie, have introduced the MiHome range of adapters and monitors, allowing greater control over heating, lighting and electrical appliances that is truly accessible to everyone.

Working remotely through either an iOS and Android app or a PC, users can simply scan the Gateway with their phone and immediately begin using the central hub of the system to control the full range of easy-to-use retrofit actuators. The modularity of the system means that users can add products as and when they want, in the knowledge it will be compatible with existing products in the home, and provide a strategic and cost-effective way to gauge energy use and expenditure.

The Mi|Home range can monitor the energy usage of individual sockets, groups or scenes in real-time or over time to see which devices consume the most power and should be turned off. Its Smart features mean users can easily set timers and programmes to fit Mi|Home into their schedule, while geofencing enables control of the products from a remote location and IFTTT means triggers can be anything from the weather to Facebook.  

Oliver Tadd, commercial director at Energenie: said: “MiHome gives consumers back control over their energy consumption. Once the devices have been installed, it allows households to change their energy usage as well as shifting their behaviour towards consuming less energy.

“Through the Internet of Things, the devices can be linked to other devices in the home and applications within them talk to each other.

“With low installation costs and the best value entry model considered cost-effective given it’s a modular system, households can choose elements from a range of devices depending on the need.

“For example, zoned-controlled heating when it’s cool in the morning, or lighting in rooms that are only occupied at night. The devices could even be used to turn your washing machine on, or your oven off, straight from an iphone or PC when you are out of the house.”

The complete MiHome range comprises:

  • MiHome heating – for zoned heating control
  • MiHome Light – integrated control of wall and ceiling light
  • MiHome Socket – integrated control of devices and appliances
  • MiHome Adapter Plus – manage devices and record consumption.
  • MiHome Home Adapter – control devices and appliances
  • MiHome Home Monitor – live energy recording
  • MiHome meter – energy data for your whole house

Entry level model costs start from £70 and are available to buy from

Archos Diamond Plus Showing off a Bigger Screen

diamondAfter a series of exciting announcements regarding its ARCHOS Diamond line, ARCHOS is thrilled to cap off the releases with the news of a second Diamond smartphone: the ARCHOS Diamond Plus!

“There’s no reason customers should have only one model option in our quest to offer 4G/LTE smartphones to a greater public. Offering a larger-screened product with a slightly different design gives ARCHOS customers more diversity and choice,” says Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.

A Multi-Faceted Diamond

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus offers all the hallmark traits of the prestigious Diamond line — an Octa-Core processor, 4G/LTE connectivity, great cameras, and more — in a new silver design featuring a gorgeous 5.5” inch FHD IPS screen with full lamination. Sleek, thin, with a slightly curved silver back-casing, the ARCHOS Diamond Plus is immediately eye-catching, especially with its bright screen illuminated.

The Octa-Core Cortex A53 1.5GHz processor in the ARCHOS Diamond Plus smartphone is among the highest quality hardware available in smartphones today. With industry-leading power, this processor seamlessly powers apps, games, and web browsing. All of this content can be stored in the roomy 16GB of storage in the device, which is easily expandable up to 32GB with a MicroSD card. It also has fast charging capability to be fully ready as soon as possible.


Its two cameras clock in at 16MP for the back camera and 8MP for the front camera. A five-element lens of the back camera prevents distortion, and the very wide angle of the front camera is perfect for selfies. You’ll look great in photos (and look great taking them)!

All of this great functionality of the ARCHOS Diamond Plus runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, Android’s newest operating system, which offers improvements to previous versions of impressive Android software.

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus will be unveiled for the first time at IFA in Berlin beginning September 4, 2015. To see more new ARCHOS products at IFA, the group can be found in Hall 4.2/121.

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus will be available in November 2015 for £179.99.
