Robots are being used in increasing numbers of different applications, and now there is one that says it will kill bacteria in your home.

The Cleansebot is a patent-pending smart robot small enough to fit in your suitcase or even your pocket. It’s aimed at people concerned about germs while they are traveling, and promises to sanitize all hotel surfaces to keep you healthy.

For example, the Cleansebot was found to kill 99.99 percent of the harmful E.coli bacteria, responsible for food poisoning. It has three modes: one for cleaning under the blanket, another for cleaning while you hold it in your hand and a third for charging.

Depending on where you are traveling, the Cleansebot could add a lot to your trip. In some places there is little choice of accommodation and you might end up somewhere less clean than you would like. The Cleansebot means you can go to sleep with the peace of mind harmful bacteria won’t make you ill during your stay.

It might be difficult to put a price on this sort of thing, but the robot will retail for $259 when the Kickstarter campaign is over. Shipping is scheduled for April 2019.
