Teenagers create $13 door handle that kills 99.8% of germs on contact

June 17, 2015

Two boys from a secondary school in China have designed a door handle that kills 99.8% of all germs on contact. And it costs just $13.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: inhabitat.com

Turns out, titanium dioxide, when exposed to LED light, kills almost all bacteria. Voilå! A door handle developed by two teens has both components and is so inexpensive we’re likely to soon see them everywhere. A wonderful application of #innovation in #science!
