In response to COVID, everything from touchscreen systems to doorknobs and shopping cart handles are being reinvented and Germ Nerds is introducing a new finger protector to reduce cross-contamination. The germ defense tool called ‘the nrd.’ recognizes that there are many parts of the world can’t quickly be updated to be completely contactless and people will still need to interact with certain surfaces outside of the home. The device has pockets for the index and middle finger, and magnetized ends for grabbing, pulling, opening and other actions.
The compact accessory itself is made from soft-touch, antimicrobial silicone, so it folds easily and can be sanitized with just as much ease. Like masks, these devices have the potential to become going out essentials, especially as they can be attached to bags and belt loops.
