Vioguard introduces in the UVKB50, the world’s first self-sanitizing computer keyboard. On a user-triggered or pre-determined basis, the Vioguard keyboard automatically retracts into its own clean, “light tight” enclosure and safely floods the keyboard with ultraviolet light to disinfect keyboard surfaces.
Ultraviolet light is known to be affective against harmful microorganisms such as H1N1 flu, MRSA and molds. Based on independent laboratory testing, the ultraviolet light generated by the unit’s two powerful 25-watt germicidal fluorescent lamps killed more than 99.99% of harmful bacteria and viruses, including MRSA and flu, in less than 90 seconds.
The Vioguard UVKB50 features a laptop style keyset and a multi-touch track pad. It is plug-and-play, without the need of any software. It is priced at US$899.
