MeArm - Pocket Sized Robot Arm Kit

MeArm – Pocket Sized Robot Arm Kit

I’ve dreamt of owning one of these since I watched Short Circuit as a kid. Imagine the possibilities.

phone charger that cleans while it charges


Imagine a phone charger that cleans while it charges. That’s exactly what the PhoneSoap Charger does. No heat. No liquid. No chemicals.

The two UV-C lamps in PhoneSoap Charger produce a very specific wavelength of light which encompass your phone and pass through the cell walls of bacteria and virus to impair their DNA. Once the DNA is compromised, the cells die and can no longer cause infections or disease. The best part, PhoneSoap Charger kills “SuperBugs” that have developed resistance to the chemicals and antibiotics that used to be effective. Let there be light!
