Most of us have been wearing our paper masks for some time now, and we have learnt a few things. Firstly, it is always advisable to carry a pack of mints with you, especially if, like me, you drink quite a bit of coffee to get you through the day.
Secondly, if you are prone to sneezing then the aftermath of a power sneeze whilst wearing a paper mask is not pleasant. Especially if you are on public transport and you do no have a back-up mask with you.
The cloth masks are great because they are more comfortable, but they end up heating up your face so much that it feels like you, or at least your face is, millimetres away from a hot furnace.
Of course, there are plenty of beauty products out there which we can use to try and repair our face as best we can. Wearing your mask for more than one hour seems to have an odd effect on your skin. I always find that carrying baby wipes is quite handy because a quick wipe with one after I take my mask off feels almost like having a mini face wash.
But a company called ‘Micro Climate’ thinks that it has come up with something that is much, much more comfortable than a paper or cloth mask and has used some of the latest technology to bring you a helmet that creates your own little ‘bubble’ of clean air.
A note of their Facebook page says:
‘MicroClimate is a new wearable technology that creates a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for individuals. The device also protects surrounding bystanders from the person wearing the device’.
The battery-powered device will give you four hours of ‘fresh air’ and also comes with a 6ft long charging cable that can be plugged into a laptop for some extra power. It also comes with two cushion liners, removable, washable fabric HEPA filters and will even work with your AirPods. It comes with a carrying case and is available in either black or white.
The price? USD 199, which isn’t too bad. I think that if more people wore something like this, then I definitely would buy one. But I still feel a bit strange wearing a paper mask, let alone a ‘micro climate’.
