NASA creates a wearable device that reminds you not to touch your face

NASA wants to help stop the spread of the coronavirus, in doing so, the space agency has created a wearable item called “Pulse.”

When a person’s hands come close to his or her face the Pulse vibrates, which is supposed to help the wearer remember to avoid contact.

The coronavirus is usually contracted from respiratory droplets. The CDC not only recommends people to wear masks, but to also avoid touching your face to prevent getting infected.

NASA isn’t selling pulses. People who are interested in creating one will have to have a 3D printer, wire, and other materials.

More info can be found on NASA’s website here.
