(ORDO NEWS) — NASA has developed an anticoronavirus necklace that vibrates every time its owner tries to touch its face. The decoration will be printed on a 3D printer, writes Daily Mail.
The device uses an infrared sensor to fix a hand that is too close to the face. As soon as movement appears, a small motor is triggered inside the necklace. In this way, developers are trying to stop the common way that COVID-19 enters the body through the eyes, nose, and mouth.
NASA clarified that it can not be used instead of a mask and other personal protective equipment against coronavirus, but only with them. In addition, the developers promised to release the model in other colors.
Previously, scientists found a decrease in the effectiveness of medical masks for coughing. They found that even though the mask prevents the spread of small drops of saliva during sneezing or coughing, its filtering ability is reduced.
