Given the times that we are living in, I would much rather
have a self-sanitizing handle than having to manually sanitize my
handle – it can turn into an OCD spiral very quickly. Hong Kong-based students,
Sum Ming Wong and Kin Pong Li are actually a step ahead on the matter and have
designed a door handle that uses light to always keep itself
sterilized. This germ-killing product actually
destroyed 99.8% of the microbes during lab tests. The self-sanitizing
door handle was one of the winning entries for the James Dyson Awards 2019.
