They create a “helmet” that protects against COVID-19 for 60 hours

In Latin America we usually say that Necessity is the mother of the jokeand we have seen this very clearly due to the global pandemic of COVID-19. Not for nothing have we seen hundreds of alliterations of face masks and disinfectant products in the past few months.

Against this background, the Canadian company VYZR Technologies decided to take this innovation one step further and create a neoprene capsule in true science fiction style to protect people from SARSCov2.

This device that honestly looks like a space helmet from movies extraterrestrial, is called BioVYZR and it has two fans that charge the battery through a 5V USB Type-A port.

The filters consist of KN95 particles: a diameter of 12 centimeters, which cleans the incoming air, and a further eight centimeters, which filters the exhaust air. According to the company’s website, each pair of filters provides up to 60 hours of clean air under normal conditions, and each BioVYZR comes with 10 filters.

The BioVYZR fits seals around the neck and chest and covers the entire head. In its adult model, it weighs 2.25 kilograms, although it will come in different sizes soon and it can be adjusted with straps.

How much will it cost? This shore wetsuit, which will be available in November, sells for $ 379, or about 7,900 Mexican pesos, at the current exchange rate.
