Targus’s latest products promise to kill micro bacteria’s present on work accessories and help have a safe work space.
Targus has been an accessories manufacturer since the 80’s, and it designs, manufactures, and sells laptop and tablet cases, computer accessories such as mouse, keyboards, and privacy screens, as well as universal docking stations. This year they have three main themes in focus; sustainability, portability, and, without a doubt, staying healthy during a pandemic. The company is aligning most of its 2021 products to fight the corona virus while working from home. The antimicrobial backpack and the UV-C LED Disinfection Light are their latest accessories.
The UV-C disinfection light is to be placed above the keyboard, mouse or anything that requires sanitization and the light will automatically kill 99.9 percent viruses present on the devices. It will disinfect the gadget by running for 5 minutes every hour. Also, due to its motion sensitive technology, it will shutoff automatically if the user returns to their desk before the cleaning is done.
Another product launched by the company is the 2Ooffice antimicrobial backpack. This is for the times when work from home isn’t an option and disinfecting everything is a must. The backpack carries laptops between 15 to 17.3 inches and has antimicrobial coating on the ‘key touch points’ to reduce the risk of infection.
If buying an entirely new backpack isn’t the plan, the company has also announced an antimicrobial tablet accompanying antimicrobial privacy screens for select computer monitors. The cost of these privacy screens ranges from US$ 35 to US$ 135 depending on the accessories they are meant for. Though the screens are available now, the rest of the announced products will reach the market by spring 2021. As of now, no exact prices or dates have been provided for these products.
