Coronavirus & NFC device to avoid hand to mouth exposure



  • One of the leading problems of exposure to bacteria and viruses is through hand to mouth contact. Can this technology be used to activate a sensor (possibly in the form of a necklace) that would trigger the user that their hands are nearing the vicinity of their mouth? This is a habitual problem that averages 3-5 times of exposure every hour. Besides hand washing it seems we need more to avoid exposure.



  • @david-verbeck Nice idea David! Unfortunately it's unlikely this would work effectively using NFC, as you'd need to be really close to the reader to register (< 4cm). You'd then also need to have a powered reader around your neck also.
