This wearable for your ear uses biometric monitoring to prevent accidents.

Based in London, startup Canaria measures the vigilance of the wearer in an unobtrusive and continuous way in order to help people work safer and live healthier. Designed for space, the eponymous biomedical device measures vitals via CO2 monitoring. The biometric monitoring hardware alerts astronauts when they are tired and tells managers when accidents happen. In addition to having a comfortable custom, patent-pending fit, Canaria also does individualized data. The tool measures things like ambient gas detection, blood oxygen saturation,
heart rate, respiration rate and temperature.

Canaria is an example of how predictive technology can be used to make the world of work safer for those in space and people here on Earth.
