3,500 Bacteria Per Square Inch

Holy crap that’s how much there is on the average elevator button according to designer Skeet Wang. Skeet Wang, yes, Skeet Wang, has taken the idea of the touchless button and applied it to elevators. Which is a good idea if the other fact Skeet Wang says is true: that the 3,500 is 17 times greater than the average toilet seat.

Contagion! That’s what comes from elevator buttons. Instead of the black death, try this non-contact button method. The system uses “micro sensors mounted inside the hollow of each button, which will activate the order when people put fingertips through.”

And say what? “The UV rays shedding from the buttons will sterilize our fingertips when pressing the button in the meantime.”
