With cold and flu season well underway, it comes as no surprise that consumers are taking extra precautions to ward off those dreaded seasonal bugs. So when we heard news that a self-sanitizing keyboard was expected to hit the market, we couldn't resist sharing.
According to OhGizmo, the Vioguard has received clearance from the FDA to be marketed in the US as a self-sanitizing alternative. Using a proximity sensor, the system ejects the keyboard when needed and houses it inside its UV resistant receptacle when not in use.
This process not only protects the keyboard from circulating air, but also exposes it to strong UV rays known to destroy viruses and bacteria, including MRSA.
A price point has yet to be confirmed, OhGizmo reports.
