CES 2014: Killer NueVue iPhone, iPad case blasts bacteria1:56 /
A clever microfiber lining does the germ-slaying dirty work.
Germophobes, listen up. I'm Jessica Delacourt from CNET here at CES 2014. I've got this new iPhone and iPad case that you're gonna wanna hear about. It's called NueVue. And what it is, is it's very simply a case for your iPhone 4, all the way up to iPhone 5S, and for your iPad Mini or regular-sized iPad. What it does is it cleans your device, and in the meantime, it kills off any bacteria on it. It's got antibacterial element built right into the microfiber inside. Very simple, and very nice and easy design, and actually, fairly affordable for what it is. It'll cost $45, and right now, you can get it on NueVue's website. So for a little demo, I've got my very dirty iPhone 5 right here. I'm gonna slide it in, and when I slide it out, it should be a little cleaner. Now the antimicrobial agent is part of the lining. Doesn't feel stiff, it feels very soft. That's because it's cooked into it, but it's still effective. It's supposed to kill off up to 99.9 percent of germs, just like other antimicrobial elements and it starts working within 15 minutes. But for the best results, you'll leave it in for two hours. Now one thing I should mention is that I might not get the entirety of the phone clean and you might find that it sort of moves things around instead of wiping it off completely. Of course you're gonna get all the grime on the inside of the case, and the antimicrobial lining will wear out. Shelf life is probably about a year or a year and a half. There are over a dozen different colors and three different types of material to choose from, so there should be something for everyone. For CNET, I'm Jessica Delacourt and you've been looking at the NueVue Antimicrobial and Self-Cleaning iPhone and iPad case. For all the coverage at CES, check out CNET.com.
