73. HumBugg: Door Knobs December 5, 2006

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in HumBugg, Product.

 Can anyone tell me why door knobs still exist? Door handles are far superior. You can open a door with a handle with one finger, or even a butt cheek (when hands and arms are full), which is easier and more sanitary for you. Handles also allow for a larger range of aesthetic design options.


Anyway, my question still stands: shouldn’t door knobs be permanently retired? Then we won’t need inventions like the one in this picture to compensate for poor design. Please let me know if I am missing something, here.

Until then, long live the door handle!
