The smoke-colored circular sensors that allow a person to enter a bathroom in our hospital, use the toilet, apply soap, wash their hands, dry them, and walk out the door without ever actually touching anything.

Credit my 5-year old daughter for coming up with the term.  It’s taken her about 2 years to interact with these semi-sentient creatures without losing her nerve.

  1. Hi ,

    I only wish these things were everywhere. Many places are lagging behind.

    I’m Hua, the director of Wellsphere’s HealthBlogger Network, a network of over 2,000 of the best health writers on the web (including doctors, nurses, healthy living professionals, and expert patients). I think your blog would be a great addition to the Network, and I’d like to invite you to learn more about it and apply to join at http://www.wellsphere.com/health-blogger. Once approved by our Chief Medical Officer, your posts will be republished on Wellsphere where they will be available to over 5 million monthly visitors who come to the site looking for health information and support. There’s no cost and no extra work for you! The HealthBlogger page (http://www.wellsphere.com/health-blogger) provides details about participation, but if you have any questions please feel free to email me at hua@wellsphere.com.
