Smartduvet Breeze: self-making bed with dual-zone climate control

Your gadgets are amongst the most germ-ridden objects in your home. It might be a good idea to think twice before using the keyboard or reaching for that smartphone, TV remote, bedside lamp or light switch. These spaces can be filled with populations of microscopic creepy crawlers.

This is why its good to sanitize your stuff on a regular basis. But you can’t take your cleaning kit with you everywhere. Until now.

Smaller and lighter than a USB stick, UVGLO is a portable steriliser that works with Apple and Android smartphones. The little gadget uses ultraviolet light emitting diodes (LEDs) to get rid of viruses, germs, bacteria, molds, fungus and allergens on any surface. UVGLO emits UV-C light which is capable of penetrating the thin walls of microscopic organisms and either killing them or rendering them unable to reproduce.

Simply plug the little gizmo into your smartphone and wave the light above the surface you would like to sterilize. It will do its thing in seconds. It needs not battery to operate and is tiny so slips into your pocket or bag easily.

UVGLO can be used to decontaminate all objects and surfaces. There’s science behind it, too. UV-C exposure is a proven disinfection technique validated by researchers. Plus, its totally chemically free so leaves not toxic residue.

A single unit will only set you back only $15. A pack of 3 is going for $33. Delivery to Kickstarter backers is expected in March.
