12 Year Old Bay Area Boy Creates 3-D Printed Device To Limit Spread Of COVID-19



In case you missed it, a 12 year old Bay Area (USA) boy named Mizan Rupan-Tompkins is manufacturing a device to battle the spread of coronavirus. The device is a tool, made with a 3-D printer, to avoid touching surfaces with your hands. 

 

Bay Area Kid Invents 3-D Printed Tool to Help You Avoid Coronavirus

After seeing what was happening in the world during the current Covid-19 Pandemic, especially in his hometown of San Francisco,  the 12-year-old decided to invent his own solution for the problem of avoiding germs in public during the current pandemic , which hit the city hard in early April.

The pre-teen saw his parents fumbling with their sleeves everytime they wanted to open a door, so he designed a hook-like tool and perfected the prototype on his 3D printer.

Called the Safe Touch Pro, the device also has the ability to punch numbers on keypads, for whenever you are at the ATM, cash register, or gas stations.

“I really made it for my parents and now it’s helping everyone,” Mizan told KTVU News in San Francisco.

He’s not the first to dream up a device like this, but he definitely did his market research, and provided an upgrade: he makes his tool from plant-based plastic that is germ resistant.

“I wanted to make sure it was good for the environment—and the virus can’t survive on it,” the young entrepreneur explained.
