Disinfecting smart glasses after the COVID era: 6 industries that MUST go Cleanbox

Cleanbox disinfects many shared devices to hospital grade standards (99.999% decontamination).

As shared smart devices become more common in all work environments, workers will expect their companies to have a way to reliably sanitize smart glasses.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, June 24, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The days of COVID may be fading in the rearview mirror, but the need for smart disinfection solutions is going nowhere. Not only do industries need to be prepared for the next public health crisis, there are huge benefits to using modern technology to sanitize smart glasses. As shared smart devices become more common in all work environments, workers will expect their companies to have a way to reliably sanitize smart glasses.

Glasses and other smart devices are increasingly common in all areas of work. However, six industries are expected to invest heavily in sanitizing smart devices in the future. UVC LED technology has established itself as the best choice for constant and thorough disinfection. Cleanbox technology has the tools that companies in these industries need. Consider how they can benefit businesses.

1. Entertainment for all ages
The entertainment industry has a number of situations where multiple people use the same glasses. Movie theaters have eagerly reopened, but many are concerned about hygiene in these enclosed environments. A 3D film requires 3D glasses, which are usually reused after each screening. Most theaters currently use liquid cleaners to disinfect 3D glasses. This method is terribly inefficient and unnecessarily useless.

Spray disinfectants give inconsistent results. Also, someone has to wipe them down by hand. No two people will wipe in exactly the same way, resulting in missed spots. Plus, the wipes themselves cost money and only add to the global waste generation. UVC light in the range of 250 to 280 nanometers will destroy the DNA of bacteria and viruses. Devices like the OmniClean can constantly blast cinema glasses with UVC light, ensuring cleanliness in just 60 seconds.

2. Engineering with augmented reality
Engineers adopted smart glasses for augmented reality. For example, Ford uses Microsoft HoloLens to help engineers work on vehicle prototypes and visualize the impact of changes on the vehicle. They even built a virtual stage with a surround LED display to imagine how the car will look in different settings. It’s the future of engineering everywhere. However, that means a lot of people will be wearing the same smart glasses.

It’s not just engineers who need to sanitize smart glasses. Executives and media representatives are invited to exclusive events to test this technology and discover new vehicles. Given the cost of these advanced tools, it’s important to have a safe way to sanitize smart glasses. Although UVC LED disinfection is preferred, it requires careful design because overexposure to UVC can damage sensitive components. Cleanbox devices are designed with tools like HoloLens in mind to prevent damage to expensive equipment.

3. Software and game developers
Virtual reality software has the potential to completely disrupt everyday life. Facebook has invested billions in its vision of the Metaverse. Gaming pioneers like Valve have built their own VR headsets and released triple-A titles like Half-Life: Alyx. None of these projects get off the ground without a strong development team working around the clock to design and test these programs.

VR headsets, however, are extremely difficult to properly sterilize. With many nooks and crannies, wiping with alcohol or other cleaners is inconvenient, wastes time, and cannot catch all surfaces. With Cleanbox’s CX series, it’s easy to clean multiple devices in just one minute.

4. Medicine calls for cleanliness
As telemedicine grows and doctors adopt new technologies, the need for a consistent way to sanitize smart glasses will only grow. Medical settings must also adhere to extremely strict cleaning standards. Wiping glasses will not be enough for medical professionals. A consistent standard of 99.999% is what OmniClean provides. It completely removes human error from the process: just open, load, clean and recover.

The recent pandemic has shown how quickly PPE can run out. Doctors reused their masks for days, making staff sick and even harder to care for patients. That’s why the CleanDefense system was designed to decontaminate face masks using UCV LED lamps rather than UVC bulbs.

5. Smart schools should disinfect smart glasses
Education is another area that needs to move to cleaner methods. Kids are notoriously bad at following sanitation protocols, and teachers can’t be expected to take care of every student’s gear. Having an easy-to-use device on hand would reduce the risk of disease transmission and help keep children in school.

Cleanbox systems will also work with other shared school devices, including iPads and microphones. With many schools using blended learning methods, it helps to have a device that can sanitize everything. Teachers can feel more comfortable in the classroom and parents can send their children to school with confidence.

6. Restoration Situations
Fast food franchises like McDonald’s have been using headsets to help staff communicate with customers for decades. However, few have invested in the technology to keep these helmets clean. Kitchens get dirty, and so do workers after long shifts in a hot environment. Customer expectations are changing, with more people expecting cleaner food environments since restaurants reopened.

A company that promotes its disinfection technology gives consumers confidence and makes them more likely to be loyal customers. It’s an easy addition to shift swaps and also gives employees a greater sense of security.

Why disinfect smart glasses with technology?
Industries like the ones mentioned above have clear benefits they can derive from implementing modern disinfection technology. But there are benefits for all kinds of businesses. Even a traditional office could benefit from installing a Cleanbox on each floor. Given the number of workers who wear glasses, smart or not, having a way to disinfect the glasses will be perceived positively by all staff. Consider some of the other reasons to switch to a UVC LED-based disinfection method.

Consumers care about the environment, which means businesses need to too. A fully committed company using environmentally friendly methods has a better public perception. While major clean energy investments tend to grab headlines, small actions also add up. Rather than using disposable wipes that don’t even work very well, switch to green cleaning.

Henry David Thoreau once said, “What’s done well once is done forever.” In the post-COVID era, people will expect cleaner environments and consistency in cleaning methods. Businesses need a consistent method that works every time and achieves 99.999% efficiency. Do it once, and do it well. The only technology that can promise this today is our patented UVC LED design. Wipes, on the other hand, are inefficient, slow, and only cost companies more with every wipe used.

Ease of use
It shouldn’t take a manager hours to train staff to sanitize smart glasses. It should be so easy that a child can do it. This is what Cleanbox offers: a simple and borderline automatic process. Just open the box, insert what needs to be sanitized, press a button and wait a minute. It’s as simple as using a microwave.
