UV-C got beautiful plural In the past 10 months, thanks in large part to COVID-19. And at CES 2021, we’re seeing loads of products aimed at helping us weather the pandemic. Targus is one of those companies. Targus just announced a new keyboard with UV-C that will kill COVID-19 and other germs as well. This is something we need all the time, and will need it after COVID-19 is gone.
With this keyboard, there is an ultraviolet lamp on top of your keyboard, mouse, and anything else that might be on your desk. It will automatically eliminate 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria. Just by running for five minutes every hour.
This UV-C light is motion sensitive, so it will turn off automatically if you happen to get back to your office before you’re done sanitizing your desk.
Targus also made its debut in an antimicrobial backpack
It’s more than just an ultraviolet keyboard. Targus also introduced an antimicrobial backpack at CES 2021.
This backpack is able to carry laptops between 15 and 17.3 inches in size. It has antimicrobial coatings on the “key points of contact” that will reduce changes in catching any germs or COVID-19.
Targus is also expected to release an anti-microbial keyboard and mouse and a durable SafePort case for 7th and 8th generation iPads. So you can keep your appliances clean. There’s also a new tablet workstation that will turn the Galaxy Tab Active 3 into an all-in-one mini computer.
These are all expected to be available in the spring. Targus has not released prices for these products yet, but we should see prices in the coming weeks. Because spring is not too far away.
This will be a new trend we see in 2021, so don’t expect Targus to be the only one focusing on antimicrobial products and UV-C lights.
