You need a 5G Bio Shield, and it's only $350!

The product's website charges £283 for a single 5GBioShield, which converts to nearly $350. That's what it costs to get "protection for your home and family, thanks to the wearable holographic nano-layer catalyser, which can be worn or placed near to a smartphone or any other electrical, radiation or EMF emitting device."

"The 5GBioShield makes it possible, thanks to a uniquely applied process of quantum nano-layer technology, to balance the imbalanced electric oscillations arising from all electric fog induced by all devices such as: laptops, cordless phones, wlan, tablets, etc.," the company says, adding that the USB stick "brings balance into the field at the atomic and cellular level restoring balanced effects to all harmful (ionized and non-ionized) radiation."

This is a shocker, so I hope you're sitting down: it's just a $5 USB stick. It has 128 MB of storage capacity, where you keep your essential oils.

I'll just cover myself with aluminum foil and hook it up to a grounding rod. Problem solved for $5!

OMG,...this thing is HILARIOUS!!!

Teardown confirms: Itís just a USB stick

But what does the 5GBioShield actually consist of? The BBC pointed to a recent teardown by security company Pen Test Partners, which found that the device is just a USB stick with 128MB of storage. The company wrote:
When plugged in to our test machine we may have missed the bubble of "quantum holographic catalyzer technology" appearing.

The stick comes loaded with a 25 page PDF version of the material from 5GBioShield's website. It included a Q&A of distances for the "bubble" and how to know if it is working. It's an "always on" system apparently, is always working, powered or not, so no visual checks needed.

A review of the stick's properties revealed nothing more than what you'd expect from a regular 128MB USB key. We weren't even sure that 128s are still in production!

I wonder if I can get some of that quantum nano-layer technology for my chain.

I knew I should have kept those MB capacity sticks.

The GB capacity sticks just won't do?

128MB USB sticks? LOL The same logic as homeopathy, where the smaller the dose, the larger the effect... at least they know their target market.

Remember, this is a nation that bought rocks, because they were packaged in a box, and called "Pets." Think about it.

I don't need that hocus pocus. I take colloidal platinum supplements to plate my bones so my skeleton resonates at the same frequency as chocolate, which is an octave of the sun.

My first 4 bikes were 5G. I upped the Mooney to 7G. My TiCycles 9G. I'm holding there. (Oh, you're not talking FW/cassette speeds? I'll just go to my corner and be confused.)
