The QLink pendant is very popular with athletes, golfers and celebs; it's even been used on racehorses.
It claims to enhance mental acuity and energy levels, and combat the effects of electrostress.
How does it work? The website says:
A rather more scientific (and destructive) investigation was carried out by The Guardian's 'Bad Science' (link broken) column:The QLink is encoded with Sympathetic Resonance Technology or SRTÃ¢â€žÂ¢, a pioneering branch of quantum physics. This makes it act as a tuning fork that resonates with the ideal note at which the body's energy system should hum.
The body responds positively to this ideal note and pitches itself to it so that, in time, the ideal and the actual note become harmonised.
it gets worse...Drilling down, the first thing we came to was the circuit board. This, we noted with some amusement, was not in any sense connected to the copper coil, and therefore is not powered by it.
Oh dear. The inventor and the people at Q-Link say that:And that's it. No microchip. A coil connected to nothing. And a zero-ohm resistor, which costs half a penny, and is connected to nothing.
So there you have it. Is there anyone with experience of the QLink who would care to argue for the Defence? Or the Prosecution?... they have always been clear the QLink does not use electronics components "in a conventional electronic way".
