Day 46 Rombit

Rombit, a tech company from Belgium, has created vibrating wristbands that can help guarantee social distancing. The bracelets look something like a sports watch, and it tells you if you are too close to another person.

“The functionality of the bracelet is very simple”. When somebody wears the bracelet and comes too close to another wearer of the same bracelet, it starts to vibrate,” said John Baekelmans, the CEO of Rombit. “And the only thing the wearer has to do is to step back to ensure he is in a safe distance.”

Currently, the bracelets are being tested by workers at the port of Antwerp in Belgium, where some 60,000 people work.
