For all of you germophobics out there, here’s something for you: An antibacterial, dishwasher safe keyboard and mouse. The Silver Seal keyboard and mouse from Seal Shield Corp. are made from antibacterial plastic that is infused with something they refer to as all natural, pure silver ions. This, according to the company, is the big difference between the Silver Seal product line and other “antimicrobial” keyboards and mice. Those offerings are manufactured with a chemical coating that can rub off, but the Silver Seal keyboards and mice leverage the ions so when they’re exposed to moisture in the air, it creates an antimicrobial shield around the hardware to resist any bacteria.
Those shaking their head might want to take notice. According to recent studies, the keyboard and the mouse are major sources of cross contamination infections, sometimes housing infections that can survive on the hardware for up to six weeks.
If the ions don’t convince you about being germ-free, just throw the Silver Seal keyboard into the dishwasher. Apparently, it’s dishwasher safe.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
