Alert Driver Fatigue Wrist Device

Alert Driver

Designed by Daniel Ruffle, this future concept flexible rubber device uses motion combined with reaction time to determine whether or not you are suffering from driver fatigue. The device comunicates with an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) tag positioned in your car and only starts to detect whether you are tired when you are in your car. The device can be bent to fit your wrist, and has memory to stay in position, to ensure it will not fall off.
