An extra finger to do your dirty work
How would you like an extra finger to do all (well, most) of the dirty work for you when you're in public? No more flushing toilets, touching ATM and elevator buttons, or opening doors with your own bare hands. The Handler is made of rubber and plastic and is infused with "nano silver particles which effectively kill 98% of all single-celled organisms (bacteria, viruses and fungi) on contact." You activate the Handler - which you can carry on your keychain - with a button that deploys the rubberized finger-like hook that's strong enough to pull open heavy doors. If only this antibacterial gadget could pump gas -- that's where I most fear germs.
