American home security company SimpliSafe has unveiled a holiday sweater prototype that promotes social distancing by using alarms and flashing lights.
As the holiday season approaches and coronavirus cases continue to spike across the United States and other countries, more people have started considering whether it is safe or not to meet up with loved ones.
To tackle this problem, SimpliSafe designed the Social Distancing Sweater, which is rigged with motion sensors that set off the knitwear’s siren and flashing LED lights when someone steps within 6 feet (1.8 metres) of the sweater-wearer.
