Breaking News. Here is a new mobile phone app from the people who created iDry and iWash. One could say the hottest new app to hit the market. Finally, an app that can turn your mobile phone into the gadget you need.
"This is literally ground braking," said the Osca general manager of Research and Development Mr. Fibs. "it's like an Osca Ironer in your pocket."
Using intercapacitor resistive omnidirectional nanotube (IRON) technology, the team of developers at Osca have discovered that as the human body is also an electrical conductor, touching the surface of the screen results in a distortion of the screen's electrostatic field, measurable as a change in capacitance.
"Our unique algorithm is able to store the ultrasonic capacitance waves, Mr Fibs said. "that can later be concentrated and released into the phone's surface turning it into a perfect replacement iron."
The app allows you to set the correct temperature for any type of garment. Fibs says he is now a fan of ironing his own shirts. "The best thing about it is that using Bluetooth technology and two phones at the same time, you can iron both sides of the shirt at once cutting your ironing time in half."
The research department is also working on a plug in iSteam attachment that should be available on the Australian market in about 12 months.
