Social Distancing Sweater offers a playful way to protect yourself during the holiday party

SimpliSafe isn’t best known for clothing. The company offers some of the best security systems to protect our homes. This year they want to protect our vacation as well as our houses.

For this purpose SimpliSafe has released a classic Christmas sweater with a new variant. This sweater has a special social distancing design that may be the order of the day.

A fresh spin on the Christmas sweater

The tech-enabled sweater is primarily designed for the coronavirus-hit world, where wearing a face mask and being two meters away from the closest person is the best way to stay safe.

The sweater is built into motion sensors that trigger a siren when someone is within two meters. It helps you create a safe space for you without affecting the party fun. The nifty sweater would kindly inform your visiting friends and family members if they got too close and would have to retreat – to keep everyone safe!

The availability

Social Distancing Sweater is just a prototype at this point. However, SimpliSafe will be giving away a limited number of sweaters. A version of the sweater without electronics and sensors can also be purchased online from the SimpliSafe website.

If you enjoy tinkering with electronics, there is an opportunity to read the technical installation instructions on the site and put the electronics together into a festive sweater for some fun.
