Description

The outbreak of COVID-19 has increased the public’s interest in various chemical and non-chemical disinfection methods. One of the most promising and quickest surface disinfection methods is irradiation by UV-C light which is an existing technology used commonly.

  • Public toilets
  • Countertops
  • Walls
  • ATM keyboards
  • Shopping cart handles

…and more, are good places to use this product.

 

Alongside professional usage, UV-C disinfection is getting more and more attention for personal usage at home or on the go. However, most currently available devices are cheap, unreliable, and often dangerous to use.

We’ve designed a small, hand-held, rechargeable, battery-powered, LED-based UV-C surface disinfecting device which solves the issues with the lower-quality devices flooding the market. Firstly, the device has a UV-C output power of 120 mW which is capable of killing viruses and bacteria in seconds.

Most similar devices are not that powerful.

Secondly, our device uses a carefully engineered reflecting sheet, which focuses the UV-C light to a narrow line, increasing the light intensity, hence increasing the disinfection rate. This gives it a focused laser effect while helping the user to hold the device properly to adequately disinfect.

Thirdly, the device is fitted with numerous safety features which protect the user. An infrared proximity sensor measures the distance between the device and the surface to be disinfected, which acts as an interlock. If the device is held at an incorrect distance, the UV-C light cannot be turned on.

Furthermore, the light emission is stopped as soon as the device is moved too closely toward or too far from the surface. An accelerometer and gyroscope continuously track the motion of the device and shuts the light emission down in case of any sudden, unwanted movement. This prevents people (such as children) from waving it around in a way that could hurt people’s eyes.

Finally, we use LEDs that emit visible light in the same direction as the UV-C LEDs. Therefore, they serve as an indicator for the presence of invisible and dangerous UV-C light. The LEDs were chosen to emit green light since the human eye is the most sensitive for this. Even on a bright day, the green indicating light will be seen, ensuring the safety of the user.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is this an invention?

No. There are other handheld UV cleansers out there that exist, but none of them have been engineered with such quality to be so powerful, with targeting and safety technology that gives you the peace of mind you need to know when you’ve effectively disinfected any given surface, while minimizing the risk of harming yourself or others in the process.

It’s important that you do not rush to buy a cheaper one you may find through independent sellers on Chinese websites, Amazon, and eBay. Those ones are often just UV bulbs encased in some kind of plastic, that may not even emit the proper type of UV rays you need to defeat viruses like COVID-19.

While our handheld UV cleanser is technically not an invention, it is still the first of its kind.

What makes this so powerful?

Not only the bulb, but how we’ve engineered the inside of the device to focus otherwise wasted light into a concentrated beam.

What makes this so safe?

We’ve equipped it with infrared proximity sensing and accelerometer technology that lets the device “know” when it’s being misused, or when the beam is not properly on target with a surface.

How do I avoid potential dangers with this device?

Never use this device on bare living tissue of any kind, human or animal, as well as thin clear plastics commonly found in medical environments.

Can this device kill COVID-19?

It most certainly can. The wavelength range our device uses was confirmed by Tel Aviv University to effectively kill at least one variant of the COVID-19 virus.

But it’s not limited to that. It can kill 99.9% of virtually any microbe known to man.

But I'm not actually likely to die from viruses like COVID-19!

Statistically? No, you are not. However, note that our device is effective against virtually all microbials.

Meanwhile, even though you are not likely to die from COVID, there are other long-term effects (such as neurological damage) you can endure after being infected, that can last for years. Define living.

We’d recommend using something like our UV cleanser in combination with a proper N-95 mask to maximize your chances of avoiding the sheer negative experience of infection, as well as any possible permanent damage viruses like COVID-19 may inflict upon your body, even if the virus technically may not kill you.

We’re not likely to die from salmonella either, but we’d still use this device to maximize the disinfection of our kitchen counters after preparing raw chicken in the same way we’d recommend this device to restaurant chefs to ensure their customers are getting the cleanest food every time.

How does it kill viruses and bacteria?

UV-C radiation destroys viruses and bacteria at the DNA/RNA level the same way too much sunlight would destroy a human’s DNA/RNA.

UV is present in sunlight; too much sunlight can give someone cancer. Just like how a magnifying glass can burn an ant, we’re burning the bacteria, but not in a way that causes actual fires.

Why not just settle for a cheaper UV cleanser? I've seen some go for around $30.

Did you know that most of the UV rays you’d have paid for can actually get absorbed in the cheap enclosure design of the device itself (depending on which one we’re referring to), instead of actually on the bacteria?

…that is if the UV rays are even real in the first place, because the proper LEDs you need are expensive.

And that’s just one reason.

That’s why we use a patent-pending mirror-polished aluminum reflector block design that more fully utilizes the UV-C rays you’re paying for, with infrared distance sensing, gyro, and accelerometer safety technology.

You get what you pay for. See our blog for a lot more.

What material is it made from?

The inside consists of printed circuit boards with a built-in microprocessor, an infrared sensor, and LEDs.

Why not just wash my hands?

You could, but why expose yourself to viruses in order to need to wash your hands, in the first place? What if the soap you’re using isn’t strong enough? What if you miss a spot on your hands? Instead, consider blasting it into oblivion at the microscopic level before you even touch the surface in question for that to even be an issue.

Meanwhile, exposure to harmful microbes absolutely does not guarantee increased immunity over time in all scenarios.

NOTE: This is not to be used on your skin. This is to be used on the surface that may have bacteria or viruses on it before your hand touches it. This device is ABSOLUTELY NOT meant to be used on your hands or anywhere on your body.

Does this device kill mold?

It certainly does. Read this article we’ve published about how.

Is the technology this device uses lab-tested?

Absolutely. Tel Aviv University confirmed the efficacy of the wavelengths it emits. Meanwhile, Laser Components GmbH is our LED supplier.

What are some ideal uses for this product?

You can use this at major, public germ hubs, places where germs congregate and spread rampantly throughout our civilization, such as (but not limited to):

  • ATM and grocery store keyboards
  • Public toilets
  • Shopping carts

This item is expensive. Can I pay in payments?

You most certainly can if you enable PayPal’s “Pay In 4” feature.

What if I have another question that isn't answered on this page?

Feel free to send us a message any time either through the company chat bot or our contact page. We usually respond within 24 hours or the next business day. We can even schedule a live call to speak with you, personally, if you’d like..

I'm REALLY impressed. What are other ways I can support this brand and its mission?

    Mike’s genius is unparalleled!

    The fact that he started off creating such a complex creation BY HAND is amazing. And I’m honored to be one of the first to receive one.

    I’m a test reviewer, agreeing to purchase one of these uRays at a discount to help the company break the ice. I’ve been following Mike’s journey for a while. Not sure how long. And I have to say…he did not disappoint. The device is like something straight out of Star Trek, with a light that changes to let you know if you’re properly disinfecting a surface.

    The device doesn’t have any audio that speaks to you, but you can tell immediately after turning it on that it’s kinda…alive. I know that sounds weird, but there’s AI in the device, and it interacts with you with a series of multicolored lights that mean different things as you use it.

    You can test it for real UV rays in different ways. He sent me a letter in the shipping box that linked to a ThorLabs UV detection card I could buy separate to verify the product’s authentic use of UV-C rays.

    He truly is one of the most underrated technological geniuses of our era. And this first product is a great start for a brand that has the potential to last for many years to come. I’m a fan of Wolven Industries for more than one reason. Not just because of the product but because of the company’s story!

    It’s a shame we had to wait so many years for this late bloomer to show what he can actually do. And I look forward to many more from this designer physicist and his team!
