Self-Sterilizing Door Handle

Keep your world a little cleaner.

The world of concepts is quite the wonderful place to behold, it’s filled with electric supercars, cameras that only ever need one lens, beautiful BlackBerrys, and now… a self-cleaning door handle. The product of one Choi Bomi’s hyperactive imagination, this gatekeeper continuously sterilizes itself with a UV light, only taking a break when you actually use it. A clandestine switch in the handle’s frame is what toggles the sanitizing illumination on and off, a spark of cleverness that’s earned the design a Red Dot award. That’s great, now who hands out the awards for making economically viable, mass producible devices?
