Washing hands comes to mind. Maybe a wet-nap or travel-sized sanitizer?
Everything we touch is gross. Keyboards, books, car handles, steering wheels, wallets, money, other people, our belts, our shoes, door handles, the
list goes on and on.
If you're really concerned about contracting something from a popularly used object chances are you already take precautions. Though the "touchless
computer" could have that cool factor claiming it's for the sake of sanitation is pretty weak in a world so unsanitary. Think of all the things
you'll touch on your way to that touchless ATM and on the way home from that touchless ATM.
Seems a lot like driving a car to the gym so you can run on a treadmill. Only in this case it's stupid in the opposite way however just as stupid.
Not to mention, we all know people are going to be touching the hell out of these things anyway. Just as they grope and touch those "touchless"
paper towel dispensers and hand dryers.
