ShockBIT is (2) small disposable electronic devices that attaches to a users wrists and will monitor hand motion and when the hand position is close to face (Above the shoulders) will emit a small, harmless electrical pulses or light vibration (no more than 1 Second) to that wrist. This electrical pulse is intended to silently alert user that their hands are in close proximity to the face. ShockBIT is design for easy to use user experience to lightly remind users to refrain from unnecessarily touching their mouth, nose, and eyes. ShockBIT is Based off of an Arduino Pro Mini running at 3.3V.
ShockBIT consists of a Silicone band with a pocket that houses the electronic components. The Electronics are a simple Microcontroller, Coin cell Battery, Button, low power Accelerometer do detect an inversion of the board, and a Boost controller with Copper Electrodes to make contact with the users skin.
The Bill of Material for the Prototype is $3.09 as is in low quntity
With Further Development the Bill of Material can be significantly reduced to a component cost of $0.75
ShockBIT has a minimum battery life of 5.8 Days assuming heavy usage and a storage battery life of over 1 year
Time Line - Our estimated Delivery Date in large quantity will be approximately early September before the start of the annual flu season
