Antenna-Clothing Outperforms Regular Antennas 70

Zothecula writes with a snippet from Gizmag: "In the recent past, we've seen outfits that incorporate bio-sensors and batteries, and even a bikini with integrated solar cells. One of the latest innovations in smart fabrics, however, allows a person's clothing to act as multiple antennas. Developed at Ohio State University, the system could prove particularly useful to soldiers, who don't want to be encumbered by a protruding whip antenna."

    Two antennae met on a roof, fell in love and decided to get married.
    The ceremony wasn't much but the reception was excellent!

    You can say whatever you want, point me to any study about radiation caused by phones, TVs etc, they're not harmless, just because they don't cause cancer in the next few months, that doesn't mean their emissions don't damage your DNA and cause other problems later, for your or your children you might have after. So, no, wrapping yourself in a antenna does not seem such a good idea.

    So, you don't care about the science, you're just sure it causes damage to your dna. Gotcha.
