This product automatically disinfects the room through disinfectants and UV LEDs. It is a robot that travels around the living room and each room in a normal home to quarantine the room. It can be used not only at home but also in various places such as hotels and cafes. After first spraying the drug and conducting the quarantine, the air purifier is operated to absorb the residual drug remaining in the air. Second, it disinfects rooms through UV lamps from products. UV is concentrated through special lenses so that germs can be sterilized. As the product rotates 360 degrees, the room is disinfected as a whole so that it can respond to various viruses.


Good concept, although I question whether the design has consider the transparency needed to emit UV light. Aside from that it's a great innovative idea and solution. I wonder how the digital UX would work and what warning or sensor is given to humans or pets in and around the room?...

Good clean, contemporary and seamless concept, but would like to see more research data relative to: 1) "HOW" it works 2) How long would it take to sterilize standard room? 3) Does it move from one room to another 4) etc...
