With a lot of travel coming up this month, I’ve stocked up on a few boxes of Airbourne but I’m always looking for ways to stay healthy and not get sick. I average being sick less than once a year and would like to keep it that way because I turn into a baby with even a cold.
Anyway, I ran across this gadget at Hammacher that has a disinfectant light that uses UV-C light and nanotechnology to elimate 99.99% of E-Coli, staphylococcus, salmonella and other germs that break down geeks and turn them into babies. The UV light is the same light used to sterilize surgical instruments and does so in 10 seconds.
I wonder if it would be rude to ask someone if you could disinfect their hands before shaking?
This cell phone-sized disinfectant light is the first to use UV-C light and nanotechnology (the science of manipulating matter smaller than 1/10,000 of a millimeter) to eliminate 99.99% of E-Coli, staphylococcus, salmonella, and germs that cause the flu and the common cold. The light uses the same UV technology found in hospitals to sterilize surgical instruments, allowing you to disinfect workplace keyboards or telephones, as well as items in the home that sustain germ vitality such as toothbrushes and cutting boards. Without using toxic chemicals, the light disinfects surfaces in 10 seconds as it is held 1/4″ to 4″ away from the contaminated surface, and the internal timer signals when sterilization is complete, while the automatic shut-o ff feature ensures safety. Fits easily in a shirt pocket or briefcase for convenient travel.
