New men's underwear protects from harmful cell phone rays
Swiss clothing manufacturer Isabodywear is launching a special line of men's underwear that claims to protect "men's sperm from harmful cell phone radiation".
The briefs are made with threads of silver which the company claims blocks cell phone rays and reception. The inventor, Andreas Sallmann, explains that when you put a cell phone inside your briefs, then dial your number from another phone, you probably won't even get a signal.
4000 black (only) briefs have been made so far and 500 will be been given away for test purposes, by simply sending the company an email.
