Smart Ring for the Government and Military to Detect Explosives and Chemical Weapons

by Stephanie Tomsett | 4Q 2017 | IN-4805

Scientists at the University of California, San Diego are developing a smart ring that will be able to detect explosive and chemical threats, alerting the wearer to their presence.

With a wearable device, the aim is that the user can automatically detect if there is an issue without going through the time and expense of either of the other solutions.
