He tried to create a device against coronavirus: a scientist ended up in a hospital with magnets in his nose
Australian astrophysicist Daniel Reardon was hospitalized with magnets in his nose. The scientist said that he was trying to create a device that should reduce the risk of coronavirus infection. Writes about this with the BBC.
The gadget in the form of a necklace, according to the design of Reardon, was to give an alarm when a person tries to touch his face - the device must respond to the magnet on his wrists.
But something went wrong.
“My invention worked the other way around - it constantly buzzed until a magnet was lifted to it,” the scientist said.

Then he decided to experiment and tried to put two small magnets in his nostrils - they were pulled together and stuck.
Reardon tried to pull them out with other magnets, but to no avail: "I realized that I had problems."
In the end, the man realized that the only way out was to go to the doctors from the local hospital, who nevertheless managed to remove the magnets.
Reardon does not intend to continue working on the device: “I think I will leave this idea and will give someone more qualified to try to do it,” he says.
