Yes, your keyboard is actually dirtier than a toilet. Research has been conducted on this hypothesis, but it shouldn’t be hard to believe because we’re all guilty at some point tapping away on the keys with fingers that touched food and our mouth. Targus showcased its UV-C LED Disinfection Light at CES 2022, a new accessory that may prove useful for that return to office situation by keeping your mouse and keyboard germ-free as much as possible.
UV-C light has been proven to eliminate germs and bacteria off surfaces, so it should come as no surprise that it’s making its way in some form to your desk with the Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light. This gadget basically goes over your keyboard and mouse, where it then performs a 5-minute cleaning cycle every hour to disinfect the area — so whatever is within the coverage range, it’ll sanitize with UV-C light. And don’t worry, there are motion sensors that know when you’re typing away, so that your hands won’t be bombarded by UV-C light.
It’s undeniably a gadget perfect for the ongoing situation around the pandemic, plus there won’t be anymore second guessing whether or not your keyboard is hiding any nasty microbes. The Targus UV-C LED Disinfection Light will soon be available for $299.99.
Aside from that, Targus announced several other devices for CES 2022 that cover a wide range of product areas. Here’s what else you should know about.
Targus Cypress Hero Backpack with Apple Find My Technology
This eco-friendly backpack constructed from 26 recycled plastic water bottles features Apple’s Find My technology, which enables you to track down its location using the Find My app on your iOS device. On top of that, you can also use the embedded location tracked in the backpack to ping your iPhone or iPad if you can’t track it down. The Targus Cypress Hero Backpack with EcoSmart will retail for around $93.00.
Targus DOCK720 USB-C Hybrid/Universal 4K Quad Dock
Today’s workstations are quite demanding, especially when your setup involves many monitors in front of your face. If you’re sporting a laptop with limited ports, the Targus DOCK720 USB-C Hybrid/Universal 4K Quad Dock is an ideal accessory companion because it packs everything you need in a universal dock that you can bring around — like two dual 4K via HDMI or DisplayPort ports, Bio-Authentication via Fingerprint ID, 100W Power Delivery, and more. Even though it retails for $442.99, it may be the only dock you’ll ever need with so many ports at your disposal.
Targus Docking Monitor
Targus is releasing a 24-inch 1080p LED monitor complete with a universal docking station and webcam. This setup reduces clutter around your workstation by integrating the universal dock into the monitor, which features ports for USB-A, USB-C, HDMI, audio, and two DisplayPort. The Targus Docking Monitor retails for $399.99, but you can extend the display by adding a secondary monitor for $179.99.
