    Looks good, but how can it reach all surfaces if it needs line of sight to kill? And how is it a robot? It doesn’t seem to move autonomously. So hospital staff has to figure out where to put it to reach the most critical surfaces.

      Correct, not a robot. That was changed/fixed earlier today.

        Well isn’t it a robot because it looks like one and it kills everything without human intervention?? That sounds like a robot to me. You dont have to be mobile to be considered a robot.

    I want one at the end of my vacuum cleaner to nuke all the fleas.

    The only problem with this, is the areas where the uv light can’t reach, like part of the under bed, or something like the back side of the bed control, etc. Of course the personal can wipe with bleach or some desinfectant, but i think the company has to aknowledge that to a hospital personal

      Actually, a better term would be Ultraviolet radiation. This is very short wave light that bounce off and along surfaces so they will reflect under beds and into and out of corners. The unit shown is not the only one on the market. Others have long exposed 4′ tubes emitting the wave pulse. These machines will not replace humans wiping the crud off surfaces, they just zap the microbes that get missed.

    I predict that this UltraViolet ray robot will be a device in some future horror movie, where the heroes trigger it to disintegrate vampires!

    This thing could have saved my aunt’s life. She died from a hospital acquired C Diff infection two years ago. It would also help to remove fabrics from the room, and replace them with impermeable surfaces like tile.

    Wondering if a scaled down version could be made to help brown bats affected with the white nose fungus disease?
