The universal hooks, which allow, under conditions of the coronavirus spread, to open contactlessly the doors, call an elevator and use the subway have been developed in Japan, as reported by NHK television channel.
It is noted that the management of a small plant for production of various kinds of metal components drew attention to growing interest of the society to reducing the number of personal contacts and touching to the objects, where the other people could touch.
