About this project

NixRay wants to provide you with protection for your devices by fusing sleek, body-conscious style with the same MIL-SPEC radio frequency shielding technology currently used by the US Military and NASA.

Laptop case

We all share the need to be in constant physical proximity to our phones, tablets and laptop. NixRay’s high quality, durable waxed fabrics are an exciting alternative to plastic cases, giving you the choice of single-sided MIL-SPEC protection (where your body is shielded from RF radiation while enjoying full connectivity) or double-sided full blackout Faraday cages.

NixRay isn’t just for your devices. Other wirelessly-detectable valuables, such as newer US passports and other RFID-chipped items, can transmit your identity or payment information to a nearby party. As such technology becomes more widespread, shielding becomes paramount, and we feel confident that we will provide you with the most effective protection available today.

Our vision is that we can all reap the greatest gain from doing the greatest good. NixRay was born of a desire to create innovative and nature-conscious solutions to potential negative influences to our planet, and the life it supports. We believe that safety and technology should go hand in hand, and that profitable enterprises and social responsibility mutually enhance each other.

And we know that progress must be shaped sustainably. As an alternative to plastic device cases, NixRay products are constructed of natural fibers, sourced and bees-waxed in the United States. Our manufacturing partners are also US-based, and contribute a portion of their profits to the blind and visually impaired.

Our packaging is both attractive and eco-friendly

In a world where laptops and cell phones are in constant, continuous proximity to our bodies, NixRay wants to dial down the negative impacts of radio frequency emissions. Our NixRay Shield fabric is produced to the most stringent standards, and we offer it with confidence.

NixRay has partnered with US manufacturers who currently work with RF products for the military. Because our seamstresses have a great record of producing for the military, they are accustomed to delivering the highest production quality, as well as timely delivery.

Our seamstresses are very excited to build products that are so pleasing, stylish and fashion-forward for civilian use. (They are also glad to not be making oversized boxy products out of camouflage fabric!) 

Look for us exhibiting NixRay this fall at Venice Design Week!

Our manufacturing team has prior experience in the design and manufacture of action sportswear for small boutique labels, as well as large corporations. This experience has been invaluable to our prototyping process and our selection of manufacturing facilities.

The attenuation of personal device RF radiation, or the lessening of signal strength, is measured in decibels (dB’s). NixRay fabric is manufactured in 60 dB, 80 dB and 95 dB attenuation levels.

  • Nixray 60 dB attenuation fabric reduces the cell phone RF radiation to one millionth of its original strength in lab tests. So the real-world result of this is an effective shielding from radio frequency radiation of the body adjacent to the NixRay product.
  • 80 dB NixRay fabric has an attenuation factor of one hundred millionths in the lab.
  • 95 dB Nixray fabric has an attenuation of five billionths of the original signal strength in lab tests.

Some NixRay products combine two or more fabrics and sandwich them between you and your device. The resultant shielding is cumulative, providing many dB more in signal strength attenuation. NixRay Blackout Faraday Cage products have two layers of the NixRay 95dB attenuation fabric that effectively keeps your phone, credit card or passport “off-grid."

Risks and challenges

Our US manufacturing partners currently fulfill large military contracts, so they are familiar with large-scale production. Working closely with us in the development of our prototypes has enabled them to get a jump-start on preparing their facilities for large NixRay production runs.

Feedback from family and friends who have been road testing NixRay products has helped us to fine-tune our prototypes, so while we anticipate some small changes, we are confident that we can meet our production schedule estimate of 8-10 weeks.
