Making an appearance on Tuesday night’s The Tim Conway Show on KFI radio, Neil an Ebola zapping robot made by the Xenex Company was introduced. Dr. Ray Casciari of St. Joseph’s Hospital of Orange County was Tim’s guest and promoted the robot.
Tim Conway Jr., a popular drive time radio host who is also a Burbank resident, spoke with the doctor and representative, Stephen Hoff, with the company that makes these machines. The robot uses Xenon to absorb the energy and changes the DNA so the virus can’t replicate.
The studio was filled with guests as Hal Eisner from Fox’s 10 p.m. news was doing a piece for his TV segment, as Ebola is one of the top news items of today. http://www.myfoxla.com/story/26852901/meet-an-ebola-zapping-robot
Conway thought it would fun to have his studio cleaned by the robot including his wallet, and other personal items. The robot is one of 15 in use in Southern California. It emits a very bright ultra violet light as it kills bacteria, spores and viruses.
Mark Thompson, who is also a regular on air talent with KFI, joined Conway as they watched the process from another room while on the air doing play by play.
The robots cost around $103,000, and is guaranteed to kill 99.9 percent of virus. The conversation on air not only talked about how every hospital should be using these machines, it was suggested that airlines should also be buying these machines and be cleaned after every flight.
Tim Conway will be taking his radio show on the road again this holiday season and will be live during Magnolia Park’s “Holiday in the Park” on November 21.
