Man Building Coronavirus Device Gets 4 Magnets Stuck Up In His Nose



The coronavirus pandemic has led many countries to initiate a total lockdown to control the crises. People are all locked up in their houses and are looking for some sort of engagement to kill boredom.

Some people are always online on social media, some watch movies, play video gameshttps://www.techfoe.com/search?q=gaming, and video call family and loved ones.

However, there are always a few others who do scientific experiments that end up smoking or blowing up the entire house. A similar end incident happened in Australia. Okay, this one didn't result into that but did get a weird end.

According to the Guardian, an Australian astrophysicist was admitted to the hospital after he somehow got four powerful neodymium magnets stuck up in his nose while trying to create a device that stops people from touching their faces to avoid coronavirus.


The incident happened when the astrophysicist, Dr. Daniel Reardon, a 27-year-old researcher at the Melbourne university was building a necklace that sounds an alarm when on facial contact as per the guidelines by the World Health Organization, which advice's people to avoid touching their face to reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

The idea of building the alarm is to beep whenever someone who is wearing the magnet bracelet takes his or her hand close to the face. To achieve that, he built a circuit that creates and detects magnetic fields using magnetic necklace and bracelet.

However, Reardon failed as he claimed he had little or no knowledge in what he wanted to create. He then began to play with the magnets by clipping them to his ears and nose until they finally got stuck inside his nose.

"After scrapping that idea, i was a bit bored, playing with the magnets," Reardon said. "It's the same logic as clipping pegs to your ears - i clipped them to my earlobes and then clipped them to my nostril and things went downhill pretty quickly when i clipped the magnets to my nostril."

Reardon said that he placed two magnets inside his nostril, and two on the outside. When he removed the magnets from the outside of his nose, the two inside got stuck together. While attempting to use the other magnets to pull out the ones stuck in his nose, he ended up having all four stuck in his nose.

"As i was pulling downwards to try and remove the magnets, they clipped on to each other and i lost my grip. And those magnets ended up in my left nostril while the other one was in my right. At this point i ran out of magnets," Reardon said.

The astrophysicist was taken to the hospital where doctors eventually removed the magnets using an anesthetic spray. After the successful removal of the magnets, Reardon said he wasn't going to continue further his experiment. Instead, he was going to look for other ways to kill boredom while at home.
