A cuddly toy that sucks electromagnetic radiation from its surroundings, especially made for kids and their parents. Absorbing the electro-smog-radiation, the “Kinderguard” provides protection from its negative effects. The object’s outer shell is formed like a cuddly toy and it contains a collection bag similar to a garbage- or vacuum cleaner bag, which has to be changed when full.
The video shows a simple, reasonably working prototype. An electro-smog sensor reacts to the increasing radiation of the mobile phone during an incoming call, transmitting this signal to a small pump, which is inflating a balloon as long as the phone is active. Some components of the object have been taken from other technical devices. Pump and valve, for example, were taken from a commercial automatic blood pressure meter and would be very hard to find and/or very expansive individually.
