What is Infrablue technology!?!?!
Written for howtomarakcards.com by Andrew A
Infrared technology has been around. There are now contact lenses, sunglasses, poker analyzers, you name it. They all can read marked infrared cards "IR". But what if the infrared was only a piece of the spectrum? I am going to break it down so that you understand what the spectrum is.
The spectrum is measured in nanometers "nm". As you can see from the diagram below the vision that a human eye can actually see (visible light spectrum) is only from 350 to 800 nanometers. From left to right we have gamma rays, X-rays (like they use at doctor offices), Ultraviolet rays (UV - which everyone gets mixed up with our marked cards), visible light, and then we have Infrared rays. Anything above infrared is off limits to any sort of eye ball (radar, FM, TV, shortwave, and AM).
The normal "infrared" with the purple vision that allows you to see marked cards is right around 750 - 850 nm. The vision our devices give will allow the marked cards to pop out to the viewer. Anyone else cannot see a single mark.
The new technology we have acquired and that we call "Infrablue" is higher than the infrared. It is actually between 850 - 900 nm. Quite the difference. Because it is on a different part of the spectrum any infrared devices cannot see any markings from the infrablue marks and vice-versa. Infrablue cannot see any infrared markings! This new technology combats people who have infrared sunglasses just to make sure that the cards are not marked. This will bypass their security!
We have retired this product!
