Kerala startup creates a handy non touch tool for these Covid days

New Delhi, May 16 2020: A startup at Maker Village Kochi  has  come up with a handy device that enables a range of common yet critical activities without the risk of exposure to the deadly coronavirus.
SectorQube has launched the keychain-shaped CoGun that aids people in routine functions such as pushing the door-handle, pressing the ATM buttons, operating a lift or water tap, thus guarding the user against possibly germ-infested surfaces.
Costing Rs 149 in retail, CoGun is also taking bulk orders.
“Within five hours of launch and minimal marketing, we received close to 200 pre-orders from across the country,” said SectorQube CEO Nibu Alias. “Additionally, we received enquiries from countries such as Ireland, UK and UAE, apart from bulk orders totalling 40,000 pieces of CoGun.”
The 2016-founded Maker Village is a joint initiative of Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and the Government of Kerala with IIITM-K in Thiruvananthapuram as the nodal agency. CoGun can be ordered
