With a few parts and a 3D printed case, you can create your own pulse.
NASA has released open source instructions for a 3D printed necklace designed to help you stop touching your face. We have heard over and over that we shouldn’t touch our muscles with our fingers to limit the likelihood of a COVID-19 contraction. However, it is not always easy to avoid this reflex.
To remind you to keep your gloves in check, three engineers from the Jet Propulsion Lab founded the Pulse agency. The chain has a 12-inch proximity sensor and a coin operated vibration motor that is activated when you move your hand towards your head. The closer your fingers are, the more intense the vibrations are.
Pulse’s goal is to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus from spreading, which can be transmitted when a person’s hand touches an infected surface and then touches the eyes, nose, or mouth,said “NASA”. nasa
You can download the list of parts you need, CAD models to 3D print the case, and instructions on how to make the necklace for free. NASA designed the Pulse to be affordable and easy to assemble.
NASA states that Pulse should not replace masks or respirators. It must work in conjunction with other coronavirus prevention measures, such as: B. Keep your distance from other people and wash your hands thoroughly. However, it can be useful for those who just can’t stop scratching their noses.
