Introduction: Radiation Protecting Case
As a school project we had to work with corrugated cardboard box and make a product that has a relation to the product that was protected by this box.
I chose to work with a laptop box
Technology has transformed how we live. Using a smartphone, a computers or an iPad's is an everyday activity. But, this kind of technology is know for it's radiation. Research hasn't yet proven that every kind of radiation is harmful but there are conditions (like EHS) that show it can have various effects on humans.
This is why I decided to create a solution!
I based my concept on a Faraday cage, an enclosure formed by conductive material (or by a mesh of such material), used to block electric fields.
Note that this is only a concept and not fully functional!
I tested the concept with my phone and lost connection to WIFI.
This can be used on every box (iPad, iPhone, tablet, smartphones,...)
Step 1: Materials Needed
This is all you need:
- Laptop box (Duh!)
- A pair of scissors
- Cutter knife
- Aluminum foil
Step 2: The Box
Empty the box
Step 3: First Layer: Bottom
Place a piece of aluminum foil from side to side and over the edges
Tape these to the box and to each other
Make sure you flatten the foil in the corners
You can cut of the excess foil at the edge
Cut an incision on the top of the edges so you can close the box (use a cutter knife)
Step 4: First Layer: Top
Fill the corners again
Don't cut the edges but tape them to the top of the box
Cover the top of the box and tape everything in place
Step 5: Second Layer
When the first layer is finished you can place the inside of the box back
In this case the place for the laptop was removable so I could take it out and work a little more comfortable
Fill the inside with aluminum foil and tape everything in place
Place it back in the box
Connect the bottom and top by filling the top with foil
Step 6: How to Use
Place your laptop inside
Close both layers
