Many people are secretly nervous about using conceivably contaminated public keyboards, so Falcon Innovations has swooped in to deliver the 'Germ Genie,' the sanitary savior.

Using a UV lightbulb, the 'Germ Genie' kills an estimated 3,295 microbes per square inch, which Falcon Innovations calculate is roughly the average epidemic population of a multi-user keyboard. With a motion-sensor incorporated into the over-hanging design, the 'Germ Genie' sanitizing bulb only shuts off when someone is typing.
