The self-sterilizing cellphone


It was laughs the first couple of times Koreans were all into sterilizing their cellphones, but now it's getting kind of (read: extremely) creepy. Now consumers can buy the IM-7400 (which features, to their credit, 100MB of space and a 1.1 megapixel camera) from SK Teletech, the only phone equipped with a single nanometer-thick coating of silver particles that both attack pathogens and promote deodorization. Deodorization? We had no idea cellstink was such an issue. We're starting to get the feeling that the first person to come up with a way to make rubber body suits unobtrusive will be the first Korean trillionaire.
