Otterbox has made an Amplify Glass Anti-Microbial screen protector for smartphones. Hey, we can look you in the eyes and say there’s nothing smart about your sleek phone when it still serves as a breeding ground for bacteria.
Just remember those periods when you surf your phone and hit a reply button to say ”yeah, wait for me, I’ll be right there in a jiffy” from your toilet. At other times you get so busy with Twitter while walking down the neighbourhood, voluntarily offering your screen as a platform for bacteria to breed.
Otterbox teamed with Corning to develop the EPA-registered antimicrobial technology. “Amplify Glass now features proprietary anti-microbial technology that suppresses the growth of several common stains and odor-causing bacteria to protect the surface of the screen protector,” OtterBox CEO Jim Parke said while talking about the product.
