Ultraviolet disinfection or UV disinfection is not a new concept, but usually involves large-size devices that irradiate entire rooms. But the new device known as UV Angel is designed to kill microbes on specified areas or the areas serve as transmission spots for diseases.

The device destroys microbes on commonly used surfaces such as medical monitors with touchscreen displays, desktop surfaces, telephones, and any other similar areas.

Significantly, the disinfection process happens without anyone having to do anything.

The company in its official website explains that the device simply sits over the target area and detects potential pathogens on the surface using infrared sensors. Once it is sure that there's no human hands over the target, it initiates the cleaning process using UV-C light. A light on top of the device displays the status of the cleaning process, green for clean, red for dirty, and blue for process in progress.
