Wisconsin Company Creates Social Distancing Alarm
EmbedTek, a Wisconsin based company, has invented a social distancing alarm that goes off when people get too close to you and vibrates when you enter someone else's bubble. The product was designed specifically for businesses to help their employees maintain safe distances from each other as they return to work.
Kent Tabor, the company's technology officer, told WISN, "This technology is accurate to an inch to 2 inches. People know that they’re being monitored, so if all a sudden the rules are, ‘Do not get within 6 feet of somebody,’ and all of a sudden the data key shows that every five minutes you’ve went and talked with every single person, got within 3 feet of everybody in the building, that puts everybody at risk."
