ULTRA VIOLET SHOE STERILISER

We were given a task to create a lighting product, that utilised lights for means other than illuminating area and creating visibility. Through my research I found that UV light was efficient in killing bacteria off of surfaces.​ I then looked into areas where this process would be beneficial and useful and found that shoes that pick up odour are due to bacterial growth on the inside sole of the shoe.​ The UV shoe steriliser would be used in shoes for up to 10 minutes, after the user had worn them.
