You might use hand sanitizer every time you shake hands, touch a door knob or get off the subway, but it doesn’t matter. Your hands collect germs. It’s a fact of life that germs are passed on to everything you touch. Since you’re currently reading this, it’s likely that you have touchscreen mobile device that gets touched a lot. No matter how hard you try, that touchscreen is a veritable cesspool of germs. The solution? The Violight UV Cellphone Sanitizer.
It uses two ultraviolet lamps powered by three AA batteries to mutate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms (a.k.a. germs), rendering them unable to replicate (a.k.a. germicide.) UV sterilization technology was once reserved for cleaning drinking water in developing nations and Sonicare toothbrushes, but now it’s here to make your mobile device 99.9% germ free — until you pick it back up. The Violight UV Cellphone Sanitizer will be available this month for $50.
