U.K. based company NueVue introduced its line of cases for the iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini at CES 2014, which contain screen-cleaning properties and eliminate up to 99% of bacteria on a device's surface. The cases themselves come in cotton twill, leather, and canvas variants lined with antimicrobial microfibers licensed from medical company BioCote, and are also anti-static and shock resistant.
Introducing NueVue, a unique and long overdue concept in smartphone and tablet cases. More than just a fun and stylish way to protect your phone or tablet, NueVue cases clean the screen and offer antimicrobial protection, every time you remove the device. Not only is a cleaner screen easier on your eyes, your device stays looking like new - longer.
The introduction of the cases comes as Apple glass supplier Corning announced an antimicrobial version of its Gorilla Glass earlier this week, which incorporate ionic silver into the glass to inhibit growth of bacteria. NueVue's cases will sell for $49.99 in a variety colors and are expected to be available soon.

Hands up, who's reading Macrumors in the can right now?
1) Big companies more frequently host their own private product announcements when product is ready, not when January rolls around, and sites like Verge, Gizmodo, and Engaget are more than happy to supply the publicity.
2) Smaller companies and entrepreneurs with ideas go to crowd source funding to debut product concepts, relying less on retail buyers as a first step.
That leaves CES with big TV (but small viewable content), souped up appliances with smartphone connectivity. (Oooh! I forgot to turn the washing machine on... let me launch the app!), and, yes, more overpriced iDevice cases.
