When I spent time on the telephone as a kid, it was for practical, functional purposes. I'd spend my 20 seconds pushing the dial on that old rotary phone (and listening to the click, click, click as it spun) so that I could talk to my friends about school, boys or just life in general.
These days, however, phones are so much more than just a way to give someone a call. With so many apps and games that are designed for children of all ages, parents hardly think twice about handing over their phone or tablet for any number of educational or entertainment purposes.
But all that time spent with technology isn't necessarily positive, as recent research has shown the radiation is especially harmful to children. So what are we to do about it? Instead of keeping the gadgets out of reach, Pong Research Corporation has found a way to instead protect our children with their innovative cases for the iPhone, Blackberry and Android phones and both versions of the iPad.
An article published last month in the scientific journal, Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reported that children absorb twice as much radiation from cell phones as adults do (most vulnerable are a child’s brain, eyes and bone marrow, which can absorb as much as 10 times the amount of radiation an adult’s body does) and more than FCC guidelines permit.
Developed by scientists out of MIT, Princeton, UCLA and Harvard, Pong is the world’s leading maker of cell phone and iPad cases that protect smartphone and tablet users from the wireless device radiation that was classified in 2011 as a possible carcinogen by the World Health Organization. In fact, Pong cases have been scientifically proven in independent, FCC-certified labs to reduce cellular radiation by up to 95% below the FCC target.
Protecting myself and my children while not interfering with the service or quality of my phone or tablet? Why in the world wouldn't I want that?
As my kids are constantly intrigued by my iPad, I was looking forward to seeing how a Pong case could ease my worries about the possible harm that they might be in by staying in such close proximity.
A Lexan case with a metallic silver finish on the inside and a Leather Touch finish on the outside, the Pong iPad case impressed me right away with its sleek, modern look and extremely easy usability.
As Pong's unique case design ensures that the iPad's antenna is exposed at all times, that means that the transmission power stays optimized (and you don't have to worry about not operating at full powers). At the same time Pong's patented antenna technology spreads and redistributes the electromagnetic radiation, lowering the absorption rate by up to 82% below the FCC limits.
It's the best of both worlds - power plus safety!
Snapping this case into place took only a few seconds, as it simply pops right on and holds sturdily to all four corners.
With all of the ports and buttons easily accessible...
...the only thing that was noticeably different after adding the Pong case was that the iPad weighed slightly more. Other than that, it had a stylish, contemporary look and provided me the knowledge that my head and body (and those of my children) were being protected from unnecessary radiation exposure.
Success! Available in a variety of colors and retailing between $49.99 and $99.99, depending on the device, Pong cases have been designed and tested to work anywhere in the world, so you never have to worry about being protected.

(Other than the iPad case that I was sent by Pong, I was not provided with anything or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this product.)
