Germaphobes rejoice! A US company claims to have developed a new line of eco-friendly cell phone cases that not only shield against radiation but also eliminate up to 99.9% of harmful bacteria on mobiles.
The Tenerarca leather phone cases have a built-in line of defence against bacteria and electromagnetic radiation, according to the company.
They carry a special coating called Upskin, a “proprietary antibacterial, sanitising, and negative-ion-generating technology,” it said.
In addition to fighting germs, the Upskin coating, an environmentally friendly method of treating leather, also generates negative ions, which allegedly neutralise radiation, CNET reported.
“A Tenerarca case can eliminate up to 99.99% of harmful bacteria, not only on the electronic device but also on the user’s hands,” the project website said.
