"Cuddly Monster" children's hand Sanitizer dispenser

Gross, yet attractive

Many children find gross-out humour very funny, and attractive.

Now, you may have gained the impression that BorgCo is a soulless, mechanistic, monomaniacal entity*, but that doesn't mean we're beyond exploiting an opportunity to insinuate yet more technology into your society.

So, we have designed a range of dispensers for disinfectant compounds that have the external appearance of Disney™-type "cute" monsters.

They vary from Mugwai-sized units up to versions of Wookie dimensions, but what they have in common is (a) they are capable of limited verbal interaction, and (b) they dispense Sanitizer in a "disgusting" way - through a bodily orifice.

So as a child walks past, the effigy detects it and says "Baby Yoda sneeze now will ! " If the child places its hands in the correct position, then Yoda will indeed "sneeze", spraying their hands with green or blue or purple "mucus" - actually, a child-safe disinfectant.

They would be placed in schools and other public spaces.

Hilarity ensues.

*and you would be entirely correct.

       Who are you, and what have you done with 8th?   

       Great idea, practical, marketable and no downside that I can see. Bun.

       Of course, after a few days, the units will start saying things like "Come, join us... don't be afraid... you'll wonder why you ever hesitated... "   

       Special Cenobite version in development.

       That makes sense. Carry on.

       Bonus points if it farts every hour.

       It only farts if there's someone around to hear.
