A Hospital Door Handle That Sanitizes Hands With a Touch (Wired.com)

Not sure how I feel about this one so I’m going to just throw it out there for discussion.  It’s a hand sanitizer built into a hospital door, on the theory that since compliance is apparently problem in hospitals they should make it part of a motion that people are doing anyway (e.g. opening doors).

I’m definitely against sanitizing things for no reason, but it does seem like a pretty good idea in hospitals.  So maybe this is more than a gimmick.
