Robots are going to do many things for us in the future. That includes killing dangerous germs. The Xenex Robot is already capable of killing the Ebola virus. It uses UV-C to kill the germs. You just have to put it in empty rooms in a hospital and run it for 5 minutes to get the job done. Keep in mind that UV-C could be dangerous for your eyes, so you don’t want to be in the same room as this robot when it is working. Hospitals can use a motion detector to turn the device off when someone enters a room that the robot is disinfecting.
This robot is not cheap, but it can be a lifesaver. We are going to see more robots like this in our hospitals in the future.
