In common spaces, there are a handful of high-touch surfaces, including elevator buttons, and STUCK Design is introducing a vision for a contactless future with Kinetic Touchless. The touchless elevator button design does not rely on physical connection between a finger and a button, as it uses motion to indicate the desired response. Since people are hard-wired to want to press buttons, this design satisfies the desire to perform a familiar response in a new, safe way.
With Kinetic Touchless, people can hover over selections (such as floor numbers) and make a pushing motion to input their desired destination. In this way, STUCK Design explains that "Kinetic Touchless capitalizes on the flexibility of contactless interactions while maintaining the tactility of contact interactions."
