CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WDEF) – Technology brings a lot of changes including the way we clean.
With many new technologies to come announced at the recent Consumer Electronics Show, it’s no surprise that some of them are being used in the fight against the coronavirus.
Technology is the key to stopping the spread of COVID-19.
There are many that help kill germs and bacteria.
The coronavirus pushed us to do our housework game a notch. Robots can now help you.
LG’s CLOi UVC robot is ideal for cleaning larger, high-traffic areas such as hotels, schools and restaurants.
It uses ultraviolet light to disinfect high traffic and high traffic areas.
LG claims that its self-contained design makes it easy for the robot to move around furniture and kill many germs with a single battery charge.
Users can even monitor the robot’s performance using their smartphone or tablet.
Another tool with a similar cleaning concept is the RiA Portable SafeGuard.
The company says it uses bipolar ionization technology with AtmosAir to purify the air and reduce the coronavirus by more than 99% in 30 minutes.
It can disinfect both the breathing space and surfaces.
We are all supposed to wear masks to stop the spread, but some are better than others.
AirPop’s Active + Smart Mask features a Halo sensor that connects to your smartphone.
The mask monitors your breathing and the quality of the outside air around you.
There are even wearable tech that isn’t just for your face.
Biointellisense’s BioButton helps you screen for the virus before taking a COVID test.
It is the size of a coin. You stick it on your upper chest to monitor your skin temperature, heart rate, and other things.
Once you’ve used the BioButton long enough and the device has collected enough data on you, it can see if you’ve been infected with COVID-19 – before you even realize you’re sick.
The sooner you can detect the coronavirus, the better.
These things are obviously not the only gadgets used to fight the coronavirus.
There are also many free smartphone apps that you can download.
You can also expect to see more touchless devices – like doorknobs and faucets – in the near future.
