Healthy Data Starts Here

Dana Elkis, Matthew Ross

we frequently take the time to use hand sanitzers to clean our hands, with our intervention we allow people to take the time to easily clean the data from their phones.



The aim of our project is to allow people to take control of their browser hygiene.

Our installation takes the form of a very common object: the free-standing Purell hand sanitizer.

We are augmenting a sanitizer so that the user is able to place a cellphone into a bay. Once the person places their hand under the sensor as they would normally do to clean their hands, a small robotic arm is activated and goes through the steps to phone browser history and session cookies.
