Pong Research Corporation has released “the world’s most advanced iPad case,” which protects your tablet computer, boosts its 3G/4G and Wi-Fi reception, and reduces the user's exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), a Class 2B carcinogen.
Developed by a team of PhD scientists trained at MIT, Harvard, Princeton and UCLA, Pong's new iPad case
includes a multi-patented antenna system that passively interacts with the electromagnetic fields generated by the iPad's internal cellular and Wi-Fi antennas. The solution reduces the amount of EMR absorbed by the device user's body by redirecting it.
Pong's New iPad Case enables the iPad to deliver up to a 10X increase in cellular signal strength over any other case out there, according to side-by-side tests performed in independent laboratories certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
It offers a 9X improvement in Wi-Fi reception (as well as download and upload speeds), and a 2X increase in range. Furthermore, it provides up to 1.6X greater range than the iPad alone and reduces users' exposure to cellular radiation by up to 83% below FCC safety limits. As far as Wi-Fi is concerned, exposure is reduced by up to 72%.
According to Pong, “this health and wellness benefit is particularly significant for children who use iPads at home or in school, since recent research indicates that children are more susceptible to the potentially harmful effects of EMR.”
Dr. Shannon Kennedy, president and CEO, Pong Research Corporation, says that “most people aren't aware that, in order to meet FCC safety requirements for radiation exposure, Apple had to build into every 3G/4G iPad a proximity sensor that activates when the iPad senses that it is next to the body.”
“Unfortunately, an iPad can't differentiate between the human body and a typical iPad case so, if you have your iPad in a standard case, you've already tripped the sensor and you've reduced the device's cellular signal strength by as much as ninety percent,” Dr. Kennedy asserts.
He says their case is the first and only to let the tablet work as Apple intended it to.
