If you don't want to get a corona virus, you should go outside less often, wash your hands regularly, and avoid touching your face. And the thing is, on the street you encounter an infected person or object and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth and let the virus particles into your body immediately. Many people shouldn't have problems isolating themselves from society and washing their hands, but it is too difficult not to touch their faces anymore. According to scientists, a person unconsciously touches their face about 23 times every hour. For the whole day, the number of touches reaches 500 times. But you can get rid of the habit of constantly adjusting your hair, scratching your eyes and mouth, and touching your mouth with the Immutouch device.
How can you get rid of the habit of touching the face?
According to gadgets and wareables, this device is a bracelet. It constantly monitors the position of the person's hands and counts how often they try to touch their face each day. When the hand approaches the eyes, nose, or mouth, the device begins to vibrate, reminding the user that this is not possible. Over time, a person is believed to completely eliminate the habit of touching the face, which means that it reduces the risk of contracting a coronavirus.
The device understands when a person tries to touch their face with an accelerometer. Before use, a person must set up the bracelet by touching their eyes, nose and lips. The device then understands when a person's hand rises to their face and vibrates immediately, so that the user comes to his senses and lets his hands drop. The developers have not forgotten that the person touches the face of one of the two hands, and therefore offer to buy two devices at the same time and to put them on two wrists at the same time.
An accelerometer is a sensor used to determine the angle of inclination of an electronic device with respect to the surface of the earth. Today it is in almost every smartphone and fitness bracelet.
An Immutouch wristband costs around $ 50, which is currently around 4,000 rubles. In addition to trying to count the face and vibrate to remind it, the device can no longer do anything. However, the meager features don't bother anyone and the manufacturer has already announced that it has received a number of orders. Due to high demand, buyers have to wait at least a few weeks for their package. But the desire to protect themselves from the virus is apparently widespread among people, and the long delivery time and the fairly high price of such a simple device no longer scare them.
In general, it is amazing how quickly companies respond to user requests and establish the production of devices with the required functions. But do people really need a bracelet so much? It is quite possible that even with the fitness bracelets of many people like the Xiaomi Mi Band, you can equip the vibration function if you raise your hands to your face. Many people have such devices and they are much cheaper. There is a suspicion that they can be converted into an Immutouch analog by simply developing an additional application for Android and iOS.
And how do you think it is possible to add the function of warning of hands touching a face in ordinary fitness wristbands? Perhaps such a possibility already exists? Share your answers in the comments or in our telegram chat, it's really interesting!
Panic about the corona virus
Apparently, people are so afraid of the corona virus that they try to escape the virus with all available means.

In addition, there are more than 19,600 deaths, with older people and people with chronic illnesses being particularly at risk.
