Wash Your Hands With Plasma Gas?


gizmodo.com

Instead of scrubbing, the workers would put their hands into a small box that bathes them with plasma — the same sort of luminous gas found in neon signs, fluorescent tubes and TV displays. This plasma, though, is at room temperature and pressure, and is engineered to zap germs, including the drug-resistant supergerm MRSA.

Wow, it works on athlete's foot 0.0

Imagine what this techonlogy can do... Sanitation during flu seasons, surgery aseptic, treat infections, kill bacteria in foods, and perhaps save millions of lives.

It can be built for less than $100 in materials

All they need to make now is a tool for the kitchen and toilet XD. Push of a button cleans everything up.

That's OK, I don't think I want plasma gas anywhere near my private parts.

Also, just because they can build this for $100.00 what makes you think it won't be priced a lot higher. This would be considered "medical $terilization" equipment after all. There's big money to be made here.

Anything that works really well is guaranteed to be out of the poor man's reach for some time. Though, it may just become so popular for its apparent effectiveness that that time is very short.

Still, this could also begin to change the face of... well, the shower. There may even come the day of the water-free shower (though, I can see how gas would be a problem for the time being, lol).

Interesting find. :3

Wow, amazing find. But would this really ever be released at an affordable price? Probably not, no one would ever get sick, and the pharmacies wouldn't want that to happen.

So...what do I use to wash the plasma gas off of my hands???


Come on...this can't be good to be left on your hands. Is it healthy to be eating plasma gas residue?

I think that all it is is an ozone generator (O3). It is either done using high voltage and very low current (under 1mA) or alot of UV leds maybe.

IMO soap is safe, you still have to get off the dead skin cells somehow.

Alot of chemicals can kill bacteria in ways soap never could. But until scientists are able to understand every single component of said chemical we can never assume it's safe. And who would we trust? The FDA!?

It's most likely far from safe, and if it was made to be safe it would be out of arm's reach financially. We don't all get the Magic Johnson treatment ya know.

Can someone please explain to me how a gas or plasma can leave solid residue on your hands?


But until scientists are able to understand every single component of said chemical we can never assume it's safe.

What do you base this on? Also, what do you define as a component? Molecular structure? Elements it contains?


It's most likely far from safe, and if it was made to be safe it would be out of arm's reach financially.

And what do you base this on?

It generates ozone (O3), it does tend to leave a smell on your hands for a little while. Might take less then 20 seconds for the smell to come off, but then I never tested just how long it takes.

Plasma gas? Is that something like liquid solid?


It's either plasma or gas guys
