NASA has revealed PULSE, a 3D-printed wearable device in the shape of a pendant. It pulses or vibrates when a person’s hand is nearing their face. Best of all, this is a simple and affordable technology that can easily be reproduced using a 3D printer and currently, the instructions are available as open source on Github.
Health officials around the world are advising people to wash their hands, social distance, and wear a face mask. So, that is why JPL developed PULSE, thus providing another way to assist their efforts to keep everyone as healthy as possible. Since this is an open source project, they hope individuals or companies will eventually replicate, refine or enhance PULSE to the point where it’s ready for wide distribution.
