<p>Here’s a showcase of the range of technologies – mostly low cost and buildable projects – that the tech community has created to detect, test and eliminate coronavirus. This wrap up includes everything from wearable, robotic and hardware devices to software apps on the phone, web bots and AI-powered services.</p><p><strong>Ring of (Fever) Fire</strong></p><p>One way to help in the early detection of the onset of coronavirus is by monitoring a person’s temperature. A startup, named Oura, is working with the University of California, San Francisco, to do just that with a wearable device. The company has created an electronic ring. Such a device could anticipate the early onset of the virus by as many as two to three days by simply monitoring the temperature. The ring works with a smart phone app to present the data to the user.</p>
Hardware hackers and the software open source community are creating low cost, buildable projects to combat coronavirus.
