Soap has had it’s day and done it’s job admirably, but it may soon be dead. Plasma-gas filled boxes are here for all of your hand washing needs. Several laboratories are working on the technology. Turns out that bathing your hand in room-temperature plasma gas will kill even industrial grade bacteria like MRSA. It’s good for athlete’s foot too.
Hospitals are where they will show up first. Doctors and nurses could kill off bacteria, viruses, and fungi in just four seconds. Forget scrubbing. There are already some prototypes that are portable and wall-mounted, and they can cost as little as $100 to build.
