Bandai has just released an inventive way to keep your hands clean when buying toy capsules. As Gachapon vending machines can be found throughout Japan, Bandai has decided to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 via a protective “My Gachapon Handle.”
Noticing that the tuning handle is never disinfected and that children rarely remember to disinfect their hands, the Gachapon handle fits over the existing crank and can be placed in either a concave or convex orientation. The handle can then later be wiped down at home.
These neat little Gachapon tools are already on the market in five different colors, the only catch is you’ll need to first touch an actual Bandai Gachapon machine where they can be obtained for ¥200 JPY (approximately $1.90 USD).
