The latest protective requirement.




  • Le Křenek du jour says:

    It would be most interesting to know how effective it is at stopping droplets and aerosols.

    By the looks of it, though, a very Japanese contraption: ingenious, pragmatic, well crafted.

    All the while our very own covidiots are shouting and marching for their god-given right to get sick and to make others sick.

  • Tosca says:

    Trust the Japanese to help us be beautiful during this time of whatever this thing is!

  • Soprano says:

    Seems to give more freedom to our jaws. Quite interesting!

  • John Russell says:

    Definitely an improvement over common mask design; seems like it would do the requisite protective job while also not muffling the sound and language very much, as jaw and lips are free to move and the lengthy “skirt” allows for vocal sound to mix and escape, and a more free inhalation of breath.
