A Handy Social Distancing Innovation for Everyday Use
With so much attention being pulled into how we interact with the world around us, a lot of innovators are looking for ways that we can eliminate as much direct physical interaction and touch to keep us safe. The Hygiene Hand is an invention that is an example of a new innovation made to help us reduce the possibility of picking up harmful germs when we interact with the outside world. The handy, small, and portable design was a favorite amongst our invention design company as we appreciate simple, yet efficient design. A simple push of a button or touch can lead to the chance of scrutinizing our health, which is The Hygiene Hand works as a keychain that can push, pull and maneuver objects around you without the need to directly touch them. The Hygiene Hand comes designed with a hook and slight bump as its tip that works as a metal fingertip to help you press elevator or ATM buttons, and can even work as a stylus for touchscreens and tablets.
An Invention Design Company’s Favorite Social Distancing Chair
As people look for ways to integrate back into the new normal, one tactic being explored by designers and innovators is finding design solutions that help protect our personal space. The Capsule Chair and Sofa are a new innovation in seating that helps us practice personal boundaries, while still being able to sit in public areas. The chair and sofa are encompassed with a soft frame that acts as a bubble around you while you sit. As an invention design company, we appreciated how the Capsule Chair worked as a social distancing innovation by how it blocks the possibility of being too close to someone else and gives you enough room for personal space.

An Office Product our Invention Design Company Loves!
As societies have been adapting to the new normal, one issue that has popped up is the workplace environment. As an invention design company with an open office working environment, we understand that open environments can make for an enriching experience between team members, however, there leaves a level of vulnerability when it comes to one’s personal health. The Corner Office is a great and new innovative option to help transform your desk space into one that gives you more personal space and protects your health. The unit can be easily placed and integrated on top of table layouts and instantly provides a more private, concentrated working experience.
An Innovation for Protection While Eating Out
With so many new restrictions being placed, the general public has thought a lot about how conditions will change for restaurants and cafes. One clever idea that our invention design company loved is the Plex’Eat visor-lamp. The Plex’Eat is designed to be integrated into restaurants that starting to slowly re-open for dining in services. Since it’s impossible to wear a mask while eating, the Plex’Eat acts a large, lamp-shaped protected visor that is suspended over the diner’s upper body to keep them safe while they eat their meal. The design is made with an open back making it easier to move around, while also removing the feeling of being too constricted.
