In his one-man show "Long Story Short," where comedian Colin Quinn recounts the history of the world in 75 minutes, he does a wickedly funny bit about the lengths illegal immigrants will go through to arrive in a disappointing America. The gist of it is that they'll swim rivers, climb mountains and run down roads to get here--then get a job at a U.S. gym picking up towels and watching Americans swim fake rivers, climb fake mountains and run on treadmills.
Anyways my point is, a gym can't be an easy thing to clean, what with the amount of germs in there and all the machinery and surfaces you have to wipe down. Ditto for a hospital or a daycare center. Addressing this is a Delaware-based company called Sanosil's Halo Fogger, designed by Philadelphia design firm Bresslergroup.
You basically wheel the Halo Fogger into a room, and then it emits a non-toxic cloud of cleanliness that reportedly kills 99.99% of germs.
[The Halo Fogger] transforms Sanosil non-toxic disinfectant into a fine mist of ionized particles, and distributes it throughout a room disinfecting every exposed surface, including the surfaces that regular cleaning can't reach. The Halo assures a homogenous distribution of disinfectant on all surfaces including high touch areas, around doors, behind window treatments and even under desks, and is safe for use around all electronic equipment.
The advantages are that you don't have to wipe anything down (which can actually lead to you just spreading germs around), it's less work, it gets those hard-to-reach places, and it reportedly costs less than $1.50 to clean 1,000 square feet.
As it stands, the Halo Fogger still needs someone to wheel it around and push the button. This thing is just begging for the droid treatment.
