There have been reports of Fitbits shocking wearers as well as causing rashes and other undesirable issues. Some of the same complaints have been reported with other activity trackers as well. It’s not surprising – they all emit Electromagnetic Radiation which can cause a multitude of pesky as well as life threatening health issues (see 1, 2).
Research has also indicated the anything metallic can increase wireless radiation absorption into the body. That includes metallic medical implants. Of course not all implants are metallic but some operate using wireless radiation (see 1, 2).
So even though fabric that produces small amounts of electricity powered by movement sounds neato – will wearers be provided with instructions on how to not be injured by electromagnetic interference while they wear it?
It’s a shocking idea: a fabric that can produce small amounts of electricity powered by movement, allowing your clothing to zap microbes and bacteria as you go about your day.
A pair of Japanese firms say that’s exactly what their new product can do, and are touting it for everything from curbing body odour to offering the ideal material for protective gear like face masks.
The fabric jointly developed by electronics company Murata Manufacturing and Teijin Frontier, dubbed PIECLEX, generates power from the expansion and contraction of the material itself, including when worn by someone moving around.
The low voltages aren’t strong enough to be felt by the wearer, but they effectively stop bacteria and viruses from multiplying inside the fabric, the companies said.
Also since it only takes a spark to get a fire going, will there be warnings about that too?
