Professor Science: Kuroshin: So what you're saying is that the phone won't work?

Exactly. Provided it actually does what they claim it does, which is always a crap shoot with scams like this. If your reception goes to shiat and your phone drains its battery even faster than normal, you know it's working.


"It's radiation!"

Yes, but it's non-ionizi...

"OMGZ TEH CANSAR!"

No, you aren't listen-

"WE NEED TO BLOCK TEH CANSAR RAYDEASHUN!!!"

But then it won-

"NASA SPAYSE MATEREEALLZ!!!1!^_^"

How is it supp-

"OMGZ MY PHOEN DOZENT WORK NO MORR!"

...fark you.


What would be even more funny is if they use a material that selectively allows RF to pass through, but blocks everything else. People will cheer for "NO MORE RADIASHUNZ!" even though the exact same thing they were screaming about is still being passed through the shell.

It's a case to make your cell reception worse? The first phone call I get from somebody who complains about terrible reception after getting something like this, I am going to write there address down, drive across the US and punch them in the face.

But unless it is an iPhone it won't be a rectangle with rounded corners.
