“It’s called the GT-1000. It’s a global unveiling of the very first machine ever being used now that kills 99% of all pathogens,” said Joe Gilbert of Fireplace Restaurant.
The facial recognition machine detects whether the potential diner’s wearing a face mask, giving the customer a no-touch temperature reading, then automatically dispensing hand sanitizer when approved. It’s followed by an optional full-body sanitation mist the company says kills 99% of pathogens.
