Friend of Knapsack Jon Buford has created something pretty cool. It’s basically a little dongle that hangs around your neck and notifies you when someone gets too close. It’s called Minder and it’s crowdfunding now.
From the site:
The Minder is the world?s first social distancing minder. It uses patent-pending technology to alert you and others if you are standing too close when out in public.
Just put it on and turn it on.
The Minder is simple to use. It senses when you are closer than 6 feet (2m) to someone and gives a gentle reminder to keep a safe distance. No phone needed.
Because it’s a tiny bit of electronics it runs on a single battery and can be worn on your shirt or around your neck. It’s $20 for early birds. You can check it out here.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
