Vioguard keyboard cleans itself with UV light
Being the cleanliness freak that I am, a whole world of possibilities has just opened its doors for me with this product - the Vioguard self-cleaning keyboard. Why am I feeling elated? Well, this is a dream product as far as hygiene is concerned, that's why.
The Vioguard keyboard is housed within a motorized drawer that does magic once the user presses a button indicating that he/she wants the keyboard cleaned - the keyboard withdraws inside only to be flushed out by a powerful, anti-germ UV light that ensures that it is germ-free. The cleaning also happens automatically after a "predetermined period of inactivity," and a bunch of LEDs indicate that the keyboard is ready for use. We call that simply revolutionary.
The Vioguard keyboard is expected to assume mass production sometime this year and could be priced in the $499 to $599 range. More donkey work for me until then.
