Smart Ring for the Government and Military to Detect Explosives and Chemical Weapons
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. The aim of the device is to aid workers in law enforcement, defense, and security with the detection of these threats, without requiring the standard large, heavy equipment or a trained dog, both of which have their disadvantages. 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.
