Saw a strange entry show up in the web search terms that found their way to my blog – “how do you know if youve got a fake mojo futuretech”. I suspect this was somehow related to the hoards of people who are clearly convinced the now broke in Australia/admitted scam/barred from using the term “technology” Power balance hologram bracelets. It’s always amusing when people swear I’m being crazy for saying power balance is a scam but have come here via “How to spot a fake power balance” google searches. If they’re so obviously working – why would you be concerned you have a fake?  They are nothing more than snake oil in hologram form.

So it seems the latest placebo merchants to adopt an identically rubbish, $30 placebo product are “Mojo Futuretech” – their website is here: http://www.mojofuturetech.com/

Just like placebo balance.. erm Power balance – they appear concerned that someone might be selling “fakes” of their genuine-fake product.

Fake Mojo futuretech? They're all placebos, nothing more.

Fake Mojo futuretech? They’re all placebos, nothing more.

 

So just like before – these things are placebos – they have no “technology” other than human gullibility and the concept that you can stretch further the second time you to the test.

Same shit, different similar name

Rather than “future technology” – these things are a blast from the past. A reminder: power balance is banned from using the phrase “Performance Technology” in Australia because there’s no technology in their product.

They even have the exact same type of marketing: “Balance Strength Endurance” – I can’t seem to find it on the power balance site, but I’m sure there was something in there at some stage that seemed very VERY similar.

How does it work?

Although unlike power balance who at least attempt to explain why they think their product works – there’s not a single reference to why their product works that I can find. About as deep as it gets is “products that use holographic technology” – what the hell does that mean? Are holographic stickers so revered in quack circles now that they are like homoeopathy in that they just assume people are gullible enough to swallow anything?

Far easier when you don’t make any real claims as to why something is working – although you have to wonder about something when it doesn’t mention how it works anywhere.

So I fired up the wayback archive and went back to the first page put up on the site (that’s in the archive at least) – Feb 2010. AHA! Here’s how it works.

The holographic discs used in MOJO energetic wristbands are programmed to work with your body’s natural frequencies resulting in peak performance and instant results for most people.

So it’s natural frequencies huh.
Rolling forward to when the site looked more like a site rather than a placeholder:

MOJO Performance wristbands are embedded with holographic technology that has been used by elite athletes for years. Now, this performance enhancing technology is available for the rest of us!

The holographic discs used in MOJO energetic wristbands are programmed to work with your body’s natural frequencies resulting in peak performance and instant results for most people.

So sticking with the “natural frequencies”.
A bit of digging revealed a link to an old PDF brochure that gushes with bullshit. Seriously – it’s hilarious.

Zeta potential and blood impacted by a hologram. Where did stuff come from? Oh, that’s right – from quacks talking about “alkalizing” trying to sound science-y.

So much bullshit. It’s actually a pity they hid that away and are now not making any claims – I like their theory that the thing will affect your blood clotting. Shit – they should have a warning that it should be used to treat strokes instead of asprin.

Anyhow – Mojo Futuretech is identically nonsensical as power balance, or perhaps slightly more crazy if the claims it made in the past are anything to go by. Save your money – get someone to slap you in the face for being stupid instead – that will increase blood flow, adrenalin and energy levels guaranteed and you don’t need to line your meridian lines up or communicate with anything.

    I bet its effectiveness is maximized when used in conjunction with deer antler spray and hand lotion blended with remnants of horse piss. Who needs HGH?!?!? I’ll just scrub off some deer antlers, spray the ESSENCE under my tongue or armpits, then vigorously massage some piss-soaked lotion into my body and VOILA!!! These guys selling some sort of elixir to go along as a combo deal…?
