Coronavirus: NASA invented wearable that reminds you not to touch your face

As health officials advised the world to continue washing our hands, social distancing, and wearing a face mask when going outside, a team of three at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) developed PULSE.

PULSE is a 3D-printed wearable device that pulses, or vibrates, when a person’s hand is nearing their face. The haptic feedback from a vibration motor simulates a nudge, reminding the wearer to avoid touching these entryways in order to reduce potential infection.

PULSE is a simple and affordable technology that can easily be reproduced by anyone regardless of their level of expertise. A list of parts, STL files, and assembly instructions are all available as Open Source.
