The birth rate of developed countries tend to start to drop, as couples wait longer and longer before they begin a family, or at least try to, and much of it has to do with the environment around us. The amount of stress at the office does affect what goes on in the bedroom, that’s for sure, not to mention the hectic and fast paced lifestyles that we live in. Not only that, we get bombarded by plenty of radiation wherever we go these days, with all the smartphones, Wi-Fi networks and what have you all over the place. British scientist Joseph Perkins intends to stop the falling sperm count in men worldwide by coming up with a pair of silver-lined boxer shorts that has a tiny Faraday cage sewn in to protect against 99.9% of radiation.
Calling it Wireless Armour, each pair will not be cheap, as Perkins requires £30,000 in order toget his Wireless Armour venture off the ground, and those who intend to invest in a pair will need to fork out anywhere from £14 to £24 for a pair. Perkins shared, “The communications systems in parliament and vital military installations are all protected by Faraday cages to stop them being interfered with. Now you can protect your most valuable assets too with Wireless Armour. This covers the entire range of radiation emitted by wireless devices, from voice and texts through to 4G and Wi-Fi.” Eventually, Perkins wants to work on a bra for the ladies that also offer similar protection.
