Two young lads from the State Capital invented a touch-less hand sanitiser dispenser (THSD) and installed it at Pusolieba Colony, D Khel Kohima village on Friday, besides coming up with a digital payment vending machine (ADPVM). 

Sedevilie Kire, an Arts graduate from Don Bosco College, Kohima, and Assu Khezhie, a BCA from ICFAI, Dimapur, invented the dispenser. Interacting with Nagaland Post, the duo explained that with lockdown having been imposed in the State they decided to invent something that could benefit the society, and with the massive need for and use of hand sanitisers, they came up with the idea of inventing the THSD and ADPVM. Kire and Khezhie applied for the lockdown start-up competition organised by the industries & commerce department while also applying as contestants for the Self-reliant Mission initiated by State BJP president and minister Temjen Imna Along. Kire said THSD was a battery-operated device and had sensor, which enabled an individual to use it by avoiding contact with device, adding it was portable and could be installed anywhere.

The duo also invented ADPVM, a mask dispenser in which any pedestrian can vent a mask by making digital payment. 

The machine will be installed soon. Khezhie said there were times when a person lost or forgot to carry a mask, which had become essential in view of the pandemic. And in such a situation, he said one could use the ADPVM, which would be loaded with masks wrapped in cylindrical packs and packed under hygienic conditions, through Google Pay.
