Every time I find the need to touch a public urinal/door handle/ho I get a little nervous of the oozing, boil-covered hand that may have been there last. The Handler is an interesting solution for such circumstances.

Small enough to work as a keychain, the device uses a mechanical hook that can flip out as needed, ready and willing to grope the questionable surface of your choosing. The entire device is covered with nano-silvers (not slivers) that destroy bacteria and viruses on contact, ensuring that the infected poo particles don't hang out in your pocket.


Which makes me wonder:

instead of attempting to flush with a tiny mechanical hook, can one simply wipe their hands/butt sterile with The Handler afterward? $9.95, look for The Handler at airports and drugstores soon.

DISCUSSION

re-read what the silver ion compound does.

it does NOT kill on contact.

it merely creates a surface that germs only survive for a day or two, but do not thrive and multiply.

it is used in many things such as in pen plastic for public building pens, and in hospital instruments.
