Foot-opening-door / Door

Foot-opening-door
Foot-opening-door

We used to open door by hands, but there are many problems on it such as not neat, not intuitive, and inconvenient, especially for the disabled, the elder or children. Foot-opening-door can open easily by touching buttons with foot or stick. Product image is originated from traffic lights and kick. First, red for locking, green for opening, and the buttons will light for searching and noticing when the space is dark. Second, operation is like to kick something. The buttons set up on the under and opening side for human factors, and it can apply on sliding door (automatic) and pivot door. These provide a new way to improve the old operation.
