Immutouch: Warns you when you touch your face


The Immutouch είναι ένα βραχιολάκι που δονείται όταν πλησιάζει το χέρι σας το πρόσωπό σας. Οι κατασκευαστές του το επανασχεδίασαν ώστε να σας αναγκάσει να σταματήσετε να αγγίζετε το πρόσωπό σας και κατά επέκταση να προστατευτείτε από τον κορονοϊό.

Technology could not escape the coronavirus either. So in an effort to help (or win) the makers of Imutouch, a wrist bracelet-shaped device, redesigned their invention to vibrate when you touch your face.

Touching your face is a common way in which the virus can travel from knobs or other objects to the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, etc. and make you sick. The Immutouch bracelet έχει ένα επιταχυνσιόμετρο που “αισθάνεται” την κίνηση των χεριών σας 10 φορές ανά δευτερόλεπτο. Με βάση τις τις αρχικές βαθμονομήσεις που θα του κάνετε, το Immutouch καταλαβαίνει όταν πάτε να αγγίξετε τα μάτια, τη μύτη ή το στόμα σας και δονείτε μαζί με ήχο τύπου buzzer.

The goal is to subconsciously train your brain to break the habit of leaning on your face. The package comes with a smartphone app that helps you track your progress as you try to keep your dirty hands away from your face.

And of course it is not free. Sold for $ 50 and ready for immediate shipping. You can wear it on your "good" hand, which is most likely to touch your face or get one for each hand to maximize results (!!).

Η αρχική ιδέα κατασκευής του Immutouch ήταν να βοηθήσουν τους ανθρώπους που suffer from trichlothilomania, a compulsive disorder, in which the sufferer tends to uproot his hair because he has no control over his impulses. As a technique it is very good to help people suffering from this rare anxiety disorder but obviously because the clientele is minimal and the profits are small, its manufacturers turned to (almost) coronavirus pandemic, of which more than 114.000 people worldwide are ill so far.
