A 15-year-old man from Bristol, UK, has created a watch that reminds the user when they are about to touch his face. The young man made the watch after both his mother and father became infected with the corona virus.Max Melia says he thought of making the watch many years ago with his mother, Natalie Melia.

Called Vybpro, the watch was designed to prevent the spread of the flu virus. However, for many years, Max did not live up to his vision. He also thought of making this watch.Max said his father, Richard Melia, helped with the watch research earlier this year.Now they are working with a product designer to make a prototype of this watch.When the wearer wears his hands close to his face, the watch vibrates and beeps.

Max said 74,000$ is needed to commercialize the watch, which is being crowdfunded. As soon as this money is collected, the work of making this watch will start. When the watch hits the market in September, it will be priced at 111$.The proceeds from the initial sale of the watch will be used to provide free watches to health workers and those infected with the corona virus, Max said.
