A tool to refrain from touching objects in public to help prevent the COVID-19 contamination.
COVID-19 is an airborne virus. Therefore we must maintain appropriate distance between each other. However, there is also another way this virus can spread. What especially makes the COVID-19 virus so dangerous, is that the virus can survive on surfaces for up to 72 hours. We can infect ourselves and others by touching our faces or mouths with our contaminated hands.
A possible solution is to use “personal devices”. These objects are an extension of our own body that prevent direct contact with possibly contaminated surfaces, like doorhandles and buttons.
In this project I explored possible solutions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus through surface contamination, that is accessible to everyone and does not depend on regular production methods.
