Who doesn’t want a little Doraemon in their lives, especially if it comes in the form of a product that keeps you safe from gadget radiation? If you can’t put your phone down, at least keep yourself protected from its supposedly harmful rays by using this guard. The item has an antenna that receives radio and electromagnetic waves of mobile phones and other electrical products and then generates zero magnetic fields to shield you from radiation.
