A tech company from Canada has created a new protective product that looks more like an astronaut’s helmet than a face shield against coronavirus. But yes, the BioVYZR 1.0 has been designed to prevent possible infection of the dreaded disease.

According to VYZR Technologies, their latest creation is a wearable air-filtration shield that aims to protect its users “against airborne hazards in our daily environments.” So far, the IndieGoGo campaign has been such a success it has been supported by almost 700 backers – including those who are working in the medical industry.

Now you can self-isolate without social distancing!

In the official product description, we read that the BioVYZR 1.0 “provides a 360-degree seal to shield your personal space on all sides.”

The design also comes equipped with a “built-in air purifying system” that effectively filters out “pathogens, allergens, and (other air) pollutants.”

The makers likewise mentioned that the BioVYZR is sturdy and lightweight because it is made of Is made from neoprene, marine vinyl, and ripstop. Plus it’s very easy to wear (and remove) for both adults and children with its adjustable side straps.

And so yeah, while it would probably look a bit awkward to wear in public places, there’s no question it can help people feel safer whenever they head outdoors.
