“Remember to sanitize your hands and wear the mask,” how many times a day do we hear these words?
We listen to them on TV, we listen to them on the radio and at the supermarket. Summer doesn’t help, walking around with the mask makes us feel oppressed. Thanks to someone’s ingenuity, however, things could change, here are some really technological models of mask.
A mask designed during lockdown and then made in smart working by an Italian-Spanish team of designers, experts in technology and innovation. It is characterized by a transparent protective screen that allows lip reading, thus also meeting the needs of those with hearing difficulties. Equipped with an anti-fogging system and Bluetooth, microphone and sensors that with the help of an app allow the wearer to monitor the quality of breath and air.
The team decided to offer them through the crowdfunding campaign on the Indiegogo platform and in a very short time received hundreds of pre-orders from all over the world.
This mask was born as an FFP3 anti-smog mask, but in Covid’s time it was more than adequate. The device was designed by a Milanese startup born from the collaboration between Politecnico di Milano and BLS, it can filter 99.9% of dust, bacteria and viruses. It can interface with our smartphone and using the app you can continuously measure the quality of the environment using GPS, verifying the difference between the air you breathe with and without the mask.
Much care in the choice of materials and details, the mask is available in different colors to match easily, it is also tear-resistant and washable.
Creata da una startup giapponese Donut Robotics, questa maschera si collega attraverso il Bluetooth a smartphone o tablet, registra le conversazioni, le trascrive in messaggi di testo e sfruttando la connessione ad internet dello smartphone traduce in tempo reale le frasi dette da chi la indossa in otto lingue diverse:inglese, cinese, francese, coreano, tailandese, bahasa, spagnolo e vietnamita.
Inoltre può essere utilizzata per effettuare chiamate e amplifica la voce di chi la indossa, cosa utile visto che spesso con la mascherina risulta poco chiara la comunicazione. Quello che colpisce è l’utilità ad un costo contenuto, la mascherina infatti sarà in commercio a settembre in Giappone a soli 33 euro (3.980 yen), per poi essere lanciate in tutto il mondo.
