The lockdown has definitely ended, however, Covid-19 is not yet eradicated. While people are taking all the care one can, we often forget something that can be a huge parameter in the Covid-19 spread. Surfaces. A lot of surfaces are exposed to Corona Virus. Plus, it can survive on most of the surfaces for long periods of time. While we can disinfect tabletops, metallic surface, screens what about foodstuff and other surfaces that cannot be treated with sanitiser? Thinking on the same lines, two individuals from Log9, a Bengaluru-based start-up, Akshay Singhal and Pankaj Sharma innovated a new product called as Corona Oven.
This device is capable of disinfecting any and every surface without contaminating it with chemicals. You can even put your foodstuff in it. It uses UV light to sterilise the surfaces. This product is available easily on most of the wellness sites. It is safe and tested. You can buy it and use it daily. It is not only useful against coronavirus but it will also remove other harmful bacteria especially from foodstuffs.
A similar product is developed by subset Ministry of Electronics and Telecommunications and Software Technology Park of India. It is a Gurgaon based start-up called as Arista Vault and the product is called as Shuddhi-Box. It can be used to sterilise daily use objects like pens, phones, and ear buds. This device is available for public use. It can be bought onshuddhibox.com. You will find it ideal at your office.
So one can say that 2020 was a year of gadgets as much as itis a year of Corona. Necessity is the mother of invention. It has been proven multiple times during the pandemic. We must support more innovations and indigenously developed products.
