The Giz Wiz and the Safe Spacer

Episode 1695 (2:05:40)


Safe Spacer is a lightweight wearable device that helps workers and visitors to maintain safe social distancing, enabling workplaces and public spaces to re-open and operate with peace of mind. Using Ultra-wideband technology, Safe Spacer runs wirelessly on a rechargeable battery and precisely senses when other devices come within 2m/6ft, alerting wearers with a choice of visual, vibrating, or audio alarm. It can be worn on a wristband, with a lanyard, or carried in a pocket. It offers ultra-precise measurement down to 10cm/4" - ten times more accurate than Bluetooth applications. Engineered for fast, easy disinfection, it's also waterproof. The company says the rechargeable battery is good for a week between charges. For minimal handling, Safe Spacer works wirelessly via NFC contactless technology or Bluetooth. It will be available in early Q3 (July/August) directly from IK Multimedia for $99.99, with volume discounts available.
