Laboratory equipped with UV rays and hands-free features redefines sky-high cleanliness

Boeing has had enough of germ nightmares in their planes' facilities, which is what pushed the airline to make a self-cleaning bathroom prototype—a bathroom with UV rays installed to exterminate and nuke any disgusting germs that inhabit it.

The automated bathroom works its magic once the user has left the lavatory. Its sensors signal the UV rays to light up, which then kill 99.99 percent of the germs found inside within three seconds time.

Another really impressive feature of the Boeing’s self-cleaning bathroom is its hands-free capability. Do you need to wash your hands? The faucet, soap dispenser and hand dryer are all equipped with hands-free sensors. Even lifting the toilet cover, seat and trash bin can be done with the wave of a hand.
