The UV Disinfectant Wand looks kinda like a Moto KRZR, but its clamshell shape can be put to an entirely different use. It emits ultraviolet radiation, and it's said to kill 99.9% of the bacteria and viruses in its path. Just 10 seconds worth of this death ray, and bacteria and viral DNA will supposedly be sent packing. Either that or it will give them one hell of a sunburn.

But what about those bodily fluids?

This wand is perfect for those germ-fearing mysophobes who may not realize that in sheer numbers, there are more bacteria and viruses in their bodies than there are human cells.


Anyway, take one of these $70 UV germ killing lights into your next hotel room, and shine it on that bedspread. You did know that substances such as semen, saliva, perspiration and vaginal fluids are naturally fluorescent, didn't you? Not only will this UV disinfectant wand supposedly kill germs, it will let you see all kinds of things you wish you hadn't. Sounds like it could create more problems than it solves.
