People don’t realize that the most dangerous things they encounter on a daily basis are teeny tiny. Germs and bacteria live quietly on door handles, toilet seats, phones, elevator buttons and pretty much everywhere else.
Ignoring these germs is downright impossible. While fighting them is always an option, it’s preferable to never even encounter them at all. Germavoid is a way to keep the outside world on the outside. This little condom slips over the finger in times of public touching. Germavoid features a plastic shield with hole in it. The hole is filled with red rubber that goes over the finger. It’s pocket-sized and can be carried around anywhere. The rubber is retractable to keep the germs hidden and it even features an opening in the bottom to affix it to a keychain.
People love new ways to avoid germs. Whether or not this product will keep the user from ever getting sick remains up for debate. Still, many people still worry about germs and would like a way to avoid touching public fixtures altogether. Germavoid is a reasonable, albeit slightly awkward way to do just that. One unit will cost backers $15 for estimated delivery in September 2015. This product is looking to raise $50,000 on Kickstarter by April 15.
