No, not that Halo, but a different Halo, one that is less about killing the flood and more about killing the bacteria living in your carpet. It pains me to see how much devices as simple as vacuum cleaners are embracing technology, but the Halo Ultraviolet Vacuum is the latest high-end vacuum to hit the home.
This vacuum not only has the usual sucking and cleaning features, but underneath the vacuum is a high-power UV-C light that penetrates the carpet to kill any bacteria running around. Myself being a pessimistic fool is itching to question the validity of killing carpet bacteria. The traditional vacuum has been around for a century and carpet bacteria hasn't been a problem then, so why is it now?
Regardless, the UV-C light is capable of killing dust mites, bacteria, viruses, mold, flea eggs and other germs. The vacuum comes with the usual array of features like a detachable hose, HEPA filtration and more. I do wonder just how strong this UV-C light is. Aren't those the types of lights used to detect other kinds of stains? That could be bad news bears for a parent vacuuming their teenage son's bedroom. This vacuum is available for $500.
