Touch sticks keep you safe from disease, at least in your mind
What the blazes are these, then? They're touch sticks, that's what. You know - sticks for, well, touching things. Those of you with a phobia of using public toilets - they're for people like you. If during the course of your day, you have need to finger a stranger's keyboard or a foreign cash machine, the last thing you want to do is catch the pox or AIDS or whatever else the manufacturers of these ridiculous devices think you're at risk of. So prod the appropriate keys with this half-arsed piece of plastic, and rest assured you'll stay clear of any bio-hazards:
Be warned, however - touch sticks are "not guaranteed to protect against transmission of or infection from germs or any other harmful substances" - in other words, they're UTTERLY POINTLESS. Unless a keypad is dripping in acid or manjam (in which case, why do you need to touch it again?) then buyer beware.
