When not whizzing around on jet bikes and eating whole meals in pill form, the people of the future will think back. They will remember the terrible trials before the age of floating automotives, when the entire world was thrown into chaos by the deadly H1N1 virus. And some will wonder, just how mankind managed to stave off almost certain extinction in the face of the killer Bird Flu. But then, as the Google chip implanted in their heads starts to whir, they will remember a little-known Japanese company that legends had named, Sharp. They will remember its new range of air purifiers, ones that used rather scary sounding Plasmaclusters, to destroy 99.9 per cent of all airborne viruses, including the dreaded Bird Flu. And they will be thankful.
