    I'd rest my face in my palm, but that's just the thing we've been told not to do...

    An Australian astrophysicist who hoped to create a device to help stop people catching the coronavirus has ended up in hospital - after getting magnets stuck up his nose.

    Dr Daniel Reardon came up with a plan to create a necklace which would react if your hands were near your face.

    Unfortunately, the device did not work quite as planned.

    "My invention had the opposite effect – it buzzed continuously until a magnet was put close."

    Sounds like he had more than magnets up his nose.

    I’ve thought of some pretty wild stuff. Never thought of this...

    I had actually thought it would be a good idea to have some disposable nose plugs, like disposable ear plugs for controlling noise levels. I'm thinking the one size fits all thing might be kind of hard though.
