COVID-19 has rapidly spread around the world and objects around us can accelerate virus transmission.
How can we safely interact with daily routines, avoiding to touch objects across public space, reducing the number of disposable items and protecting our health?
Handy is an award-winning multipurpose personal device, born as an open-source response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to allow contactless interaction with daily routine objects.

Handy is available as a large version, open-source, 3D printable, ready for DIY, easy to use for several tasks or for purchase as a small version, and a keychain to take always with you.
