There you are, hacking away at the keyboard late into the night at the desk. You start to scratch your nose, only to realize that a full blown sneeze is working its way at the end. Could this be due to the number of unseen viruses around your work area? If that is the case, then it is always better to be safe than sorry – and this is where the $299.95 Virus Eliminating Desk Lamp comes in handy. I am not quite sure whether this particular desk lamp works as advertised, but let us take a closer look at its hardware specifications below and arrive at our own conclusion.
The Virus Eliminating Desk Lamp is said to be an air-purifying desk lamp that is capable of eliminating up to 99.99% of viruses, allergens, and bacteria. An integrated fan and vents are located at the base of the lamp, where these will disseminate harmless hydrogen and oxygen ions which envelop positively charged viruses and bacteria such as influenza, staphylococcus aureus, and MRSA. Both hydrogen and oxygen ions will penetrate the pathogens’ membranes in order to destroy their DNA, rendering such microorganisms incapable of reproduction and survival. Not only that, allergens, tobacco smoke, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted by some paint and furnishings are also neutralized along the way, all without the need for a filter. If you fall sick while sticking close to this lamp, it is about time you up your intake of vitamin C and perhaps, get more exercise.
