View Full Version : wacom tablet question

12 December 2003, 11:56 AM
I got my wacom tablet yesterday, and i must say it's an incredible piece of hardware. But one thing bugged me a little. In the accompanying docs, they mentioned that it works on radio frequency and electromagnetic emissions. Now i ussually hold the tablet on my lap, so naturally, I have to ask: are there any health risks associated with this? Thanx.

I use a tin foil hat much like the type used by conspiracy nuts for my family jewels when using my Wacom on my lap

The thing is VERY VERY low power. Not much more than the normal background radiation flying all around you at this very moment. Don't worry about it.

One should probably worry more about using a cell phone than a tablet ;)
