Toepener lets you avoid cooties at public restrooms

I'm not exactly a germaphobe, but having to grab a door handle to get out of a public rest room can be pretty unsettling, especially if the guy who left before you didn't wash up. Now there's a no-brainer kind of solution, a foot level handle that lets you open the door with your shoe.

We already have toilets that flush themselves, and motion sensing sinks, soap dispensers, and hand dryers, so this is the last remaining link to a completely hands free bathroom experience.

Sometimes the best tech is the simplest tech.
