The Covid-19 has impacted on the most diverse aspects of daily life, imposing a series of measures of hygiene and social distance with the that we have to live during this “normal”. In the midst of this complex context, the entrepreneurs Dayane Galvis and Tatiana Salamanca have created what may become a useful hedge against the expansion of the Covid-19: the necklace and bracelet smart 2VIBBES , thanks to a powerful sensor allows you to maintain the so-called “social distance” recommended (2 meters).

Dayane Galvis has explained in statements to ABC that the idea came about during his stay in his native Colombia, where he suffered the rigors of confinement by the Covid-19, “when we started out, there is only one day a week, is that the people did not know what was a metro : We are very cercaa, to just a few inches, and since we say that there is a distance”.

a Graduate in Economics and with more than a decade installed in Spain, along with his current partner Tatiana created the bracelet and the necklace 2VIBBES, as well as the startup of the same name – “2 VIBBES” – with headquarters in Toledo.”We spent three months just to schedule for the prototype to only detect humans, not trees or movements,” he noted. In particular, the collar has an infrared that detects the human movement less than two metres by issuing to its holder a vibration and a Led light . For its part, the collar has a radius of action below the collar and to add to all the above a detector body temperature that is activated when it exceeds 37 degrees.

Asked about apps which may have both products, Galvis has commented that “the bracelet can have a more fenced-in – 1.3-meters – to a meeting in a closed place, and with respect to the collar, what we see more and more industrial level for events within the supermarkets, banks or hospitals even,” he noted. In this sense, believes that could be delivered to the entry for your later return. In both cases, it is not necessary that the other person carried a similar product and has an autonomy of eight hours.

For all of the foregoing, has had the support of the Financial Institute of Castilla – La Mancha and already have their sights on apply for two incubators. Asked about the future of this startup, Galvis has been added that are in the phase of gathering funding in order to proceed to its massive commercialization in Spain and Colombia . “We have focused on a product low cost , which is one of the competitive advantages that we have over other new products launched on the occasion of the Covid,” added the co-founder of 2VIBBES. Of time, has pointed out, the project is having a favorable reception among private investors.

Precisely, has confessed to being the co-founder of 2VIBBES, the greatest difficulties, so far, have had on-the-ground technical support. “We’re going step by step solving all: we want you to leave as soon as possible all and thus be able to participate in the moment in which we are” , has been explained already looking at toward the future of technical improvements and the financing (“without money you can not create anything”).

In any case, from this little startup, have claimed that their prototype is not entail any intrusion into the privacy nor are localizable and that it is possible to switch it on or off without any problem.
