  1. Device Rids Buses of Dangerous Pathogens

    The best place to enjoy a breath of fresh air may be a city bus, if Rice Univ. students have their way. A team of graduating seniors has created a system for public transit that would continually clear the air of pathogens that can lead to tuberculosis (TB), flu and pneumonia.

The device, called FluProof, incorporates high-powered ultraviolet lamps that sterilize the air on the fly.
