Consumer Electronics Show highlights touch-free technology to improve the home, kitchen, bathroom
Keeping up with the pandemic, technology that lets you keep your hands to yourself was all the rage in products debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show this year.
The idea behind contactless technology is simple: the fewer things you touch, the less likely you are to ingest germs or even the coronavirus.
Many manufacturers are banking on this trend and know that people want a touchless function for almost everything.

Doorbell cameras already exist, but the no-contact feature will ring when a visitor or postman is on your door mat.
A refrigerator that can be opened by voice command was also presented.
The bathroom is also becoming non-contact, and homes can finally get hands-free toilets.
“This toilet they are working on is due out in March, $ 600, up to $ 1000, and it really comes down to if you stop using your toilet instead of touching the handle, just wave me the hand and it is rinsed. ” said CNET’s Connie Guglielmo.
Another large product line were UV lights. You can find UV light in things like water dispensers, including handheld versions.
Another thing you might like is a new way to stay safe and keep in touch at the same time.
Mask phones are masks with earphones and a built-in microphone that you can use to take calls on the go and still follow mask rules at the airport or in the grocery store. The mask costs $ 50.
Manufacturers say this type of innovation will drive sales well beyond the pandemic.
