Panasonic Filters Bird Flu, Other Nasties

Being the resident hypochondriac here at CG, I tend to become easily exciteable by health related technology. So this morning when I woke up, the first thing that caught my eye was this new fancy-pants air filter from Panasonic. It utilizes a new technology dubbed Super Alleru-Buster to eliminate 99.999 percent of the baddies from the air, including things like bird flu, influenze and SARS.

I guess the concept of an air filter isn’t perfect because germs have to pass through the membrane for it to be effective, but it’s better than nothing. Someone should invent hypersonics that just kill the stuff in the air. Then they should give me lots of money because I just came up with the idea.
