Are you that kind of people that always carry a sanitizing gel with you? I know that I am, because I always have one in my bag, mostly when I travel on the train, which is every weekend. If you`re like me, I have great news!!
This is a new concept for our doorknobs, a self-sanitizing doorknob. This is a smart idea, the doorknob has UV-lights to disinfect itself, i. e., every time that someone touches the door handle, it kills every virus or bacteria that remained on it.
The self-sanitizing doorknob was designed by Red Dot and it is designed to turn on the UV-lamp when no one is using it.
We know that hand sanitizers aren`t the best solution, because it dries our skin and it takes some effort, we can always forget to use it. This technology would prevent the additional effort and it would be so much more preventive in flu seasons, don`t you agree. I see this as an improvement of our health but I don`t see the buildings change their door handles for this type of technology. If I see a hospital with this, I would be very happy.
What do you think of this? Is it a good idea? Would you like to see the hygienic handlers on public buildings?
