Hospital Robot cleans rooms with light

FROM CYBORGS WE TURN TO ROBOTS – WHICH WE’RE INCREASINGLY RELYING ON IN THE MILITARY, IN SPACE EXPLORATION…AND, NOW, TO HELP US CLEAN! AND, NO, I’M NOT TALKING ABOUT THE LITTLE VACUUM ROBOTS THAT CLEAN THE FLOOR – I’M TALKING ABOUT A HOSPITAL ROBOT THAT CLEANS WITH ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT.

ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT IS A FORM OF LIGHT ENERGY, WHICH IS NOT VISIBLE TO THE HUMAN EYE – AND THE RADIATION FROM THIS LIGHT CAN BE USED TO KILL GERMS. UP NEXT, WE LEARN ABOUT A NEW ULTRAVIOLET GERM-ZAPPING ROBOT!
