Fitbit Software That Alerts You To People Closer Than 6 Feet

The app senses un-recognized Bluetooth signals and makes your Fitbit vibrate when they get too close.
  [vote for,

The idea is to help people keep the mandatory 6 feet of separation during virus caused plaques.

Your phone recognizes your Fitbit via Bluetooth and other Bluetooth devices in its proximity.

Whether it can measure distance accurately enough to do this I don't know.

       As I said on your competitor's idea - this must be for blind people, or those whose eyes are constantly on their phone. Or buried in book - though that might be giving to much credit or hope for the human race.

       8th's receptionist: Well, It's one pound for a five minute session, but only eight pounds for a course of ten.   

       Customer: Well, I think it would be best if I perhaps started off with just the one and then see how it goes.
