This is great news. This low-cost robot zaps bugs. There are lots of life-threatening bugs in hospital rooms. This robot is wheeled in, turned on, and in 5 minutes, 99.9% of the bugs are gone.
It uses ultraviolet light to ruin their DNA. They can’t reproduce. They die out, leaving no progeny.
This frees up workers from having to scrub the rooms. This pays for the robot.
Patients are healthier. Hospitals are more profitable. The number of lawsuits is reduced. The losers are the bugs and low-paid workers, some of whom will have to find another line of work.
The robot could work in an airplane in between flights.
This company is going to make a lot of money.
The federal government asks this question: “How can we stop Ebola in hospitals?” The free market has already developed an answer.
The only threat that this machine poses is that it can blind the operator. Therefore, it is safe for CDC officials to operate.
