Aura Aware

Netherlands-based company Aura Aware has developed a smart "spacer" that sounds the alarm when someone comes within a radius of one and a half meters. Forget well-intentioned sales ribbons, folded pizza boxes, stickers and transparent plexiglass plates. Our brain is used to a social distance of 60 centimeters, says Aura Aware. Awareness and behavioral change are not in our system overnight. And how can you be sure that you actually keep that one and a half meters away? The Aura Aware lights up red and warns people within a meter and a half with an audible signal. Click here to learn more.
