How Do Microfibre works? The Science Behind Microfiber…

By on Nov 10, 2014 in microfiber, Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, microfiber cleaning cloth for optics | 0 comments

Did you know that microfiber (also written as microfibre) is actually composed of tiny strands of plastic? You probably think that it is just like any other cleaning cloth, but in fact it’s not! Microfiber fabric is full of of surprises. Not only does it make our lives a lot easier, but it’s also one of the most eco-friendly ways of cleaning things!   In this article, I’ll show you how microfibre works, and how it can make your household items shine even without the use of expensive cleaning chemicals.   Sales pitch? Magic? No! It’s a pure science!   Before we knew about microfibre, we were using soap and water to clean windows, glasses and almost anything that needed cleaning. Water is very good at cleaning almost everything just by itself, because it is composed of two different molecules that are electrically unbalanced. As a result, it sticks to all kinds of things just like magnet and breaks them apart thru the process of dissolution. Because of that characteristic, water is also called “the universal solvent” since it can dissolve so many things.   However, some stains like grease and oil cannot be dissolved by water, so in this case we turn to detergents. Detergent is a soapy chemical that clings to grease, breaks its apart and makes it easier for water to flush away.   But many people do not like using detergents, because aside from being expensive, detergents are often toxic and made of chemicals that may lead to allergic reactions and chronic skin problems. For that reason, it’s much better to clean stuff without chemicals, and that’s exactly where Microfibre comes into play!   A single human is weak and cannot do much work, however a large team of people can move mountains, so do microfibers! Millions of tiny strands combined into a tightly woven fabric make it incredibly powerful! In fact, a square inch of such a fabric has over 200 thousand of tiny fibers.   These small fibers have positive electrostatic charge that keeps them together, and attracts dirt particles, even the tiniest ones! Dirt is normally negatively charged, therefore it naturally sticks to microfibers just like North and South poles on 2...

Amazing Facts About Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

By on Nov 10, 2014 in microfiber, Microfiber Cleaning Cloth, microfiber cleaning cloth for optics | 0 comments

Did you know that individual fibers in a microfiber cleaning cloth are 100 times narrower than a human hair? In fact, it is one third the diameter of a cotton and a quarter of wool’s width!   Amazing, right? In this article I’m going to show you five amazing facts about microfiber fabric, which is the reason why it’s the number one cleaning material for delicate surfaces. We spend more than half of our lives indoors (in houses, apartments, and in the offices), one third of us wear eye glasses, and almost everyone  has a camera now. All household items need to be cleaned on daily basis. Eye glasses and camera lenses require cleaning even more often, and 60% of all surfaces we clean are considered to be delicate.   So what’s the deal with microfiber?   Well, suppose you need to clean your 600 dollar camera lense… Obviously, you can do it the old fashion way using a damp cotton cloth like a shred of your worn out teeshirt, which you were about to trash, but suddenly decided to give it a second life as a cleaning media. This piece of fabric, if washed properly, should theoretically work on glass,  but it will definitely give you the following side effects: cotton cloth will leave lint on the glass, and any attempt to wipe it off will cause more lint to build up (and it’ pretty much a really annoying vicious cycle); at some point your cotton cloth will accumulate enough dust, and you will start spreading the dust along the surface of the glass instead of cleaning it; you won’t be able to remove grease stains like fingerprints from the surface of the glass, you will be just spreading the grease along the surface of the glass you will end up with scratches on your lenses because cotton fibers are hard and can damage delicate surfaces.   So there is only one proper way of cleaning optics… It’s cleaning it with a dry microfiber cleaning cloth! And not only optics… Microfiber works best on all surfaces, much better that cotton. And it does not require any water to work, at all!   Microfiber removes 99 percent of bacteria...

Radiation from your iPhone?

By on May 9, 2014 in Car Phones, Health & Safety | 0 comments

  Are your gadgets harmful to your health? Can your iPhone cause cancer? Before you start to panic, read on to learn about what cellphone radiation is, how it affects your health and what to do to protect yourself. What is cellphone radiation? Cellphones transmit and receive calls from network towers using radio waves. Other everyday gadgets like radios, TV’s and microwave ovens also use the same technology. All these gadgets emit low frequency radiation that is non-ionizing – which is not really harmful in small amounts. The harmful ionizing kind of radiation, like X-ray, messes with electrons that mutate cells and cause cancer very fast. The EMF radiation that is emitted by any digital device is very quickly dissipated with distance, so if you put some distance between your body and your phone… even a few centimetres, it is usually enough to reduce the effect. However, cell phone radiation, although non-ionizing, is a special case because we use and keep phones so close to our body for very longer periods of time. Whenever we stick a phone to our ear to make a call, the brain is exposed to radiation in small amounts. Is it bad for me? In short – yes. Pretty much. Although a long term effect is not yet scientifically proven for sure, there are two problems you should be aware that have been repeatedly demonstrated. Blood erythrocytes clustering Our brain has a very diverse network of tiny capillaries that deliver oxygen in our blood to different sections of our brain. Our neurons need to eat and breathe. Those capillaries are really tiny and under the influence of low intensity EMF, the erythrocytes in our blood tend to form some tight clusters. They can no longer fit into those tiny blood vessels and they simply create a plug that closes these particular blood vessels forever. After that, this particular part of the brain is dead forever since it can no longer get oxygen and food. This happens very gradually since this exposure is very small. If it accumulates in one area where the cell phone has the greatest exposure, it will create a tumorous growth in time, especially in addition to the second problem… Heating...

App of the Week: Cycloramic

By on May 7, 2014 in Car Phones | 0 comments

  Cycloramic has been our favorite panoramic app since before the sharks tried to eat Bruno, and each other, in that Shark Tank episode that made this the most popular app for iPhone lovers across North America. What does it do? Cycloramic creates 360° panorama pictures by taking high resolution photos of scenery as your iPhone5 goes around in a circle all on its own (no hands!). It takes around 14 pictures total for the 360° view which it then stitches together to recreate the whole scene that can be viewed thru the app’s immersive 3D viewer. The innovative hands-free feature, which uses a kind of gyroscope and the phone’s vibrate functions to turn bit by bit to take pictures, is the patented technology that made this app a winner for the sharks, and us here at SecurOMax. Watch the clip from Shark Tank: Place your iPhone5 upright on a flat smooth surface and watch it do all the work for you. You can even clap or whistle to signal when you want it to start shooting! The hands-free function only works with iPhone5/5s, thanks to its’ flat base. When there is no flat surface around, the guided mode is also easy enough to point and shoot and the pictures come together seamlessly. This guided mode also works for iPads and iPhone 4 or 5c that do not have a flat base. Other apps from the same shark bait (or the Cycloramic family of apps): Cycloramic          $1.99 Shoots 90°, 180°, 270°, 360° panoramas Photo editing tools from Aviary: filters, adjustments, stickers, frames etc. Converts photos to videos Guided and Handsfree (for iPhone 5/5s) modes Quick sharing functions to social media.   Cycloramic Pro  $2.99 Does everything above, with extra features like 4xHD and White Label included. selfie360               Free This is Cycloramic’s younger sister that takes panoramic pictures of scenes with your selfie as the focal point! It has 3 modes you can play with for animated selfies: 1. Portrait captures a panoramic selfie of your profile by taking several shots starting from your left profile to the right. 2. Panorama lets you take a selfie with a moving panoramic photo of the scene behind you. 3. Full 3D Selfies...
