Lately, we have seen many budding entrepreneurs and business people coming up with creative masks in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
One such creative mask is a type of mask that allows people to eat without taking it off.
The invention is the brainchild of Israeli inventors from Avtipus Patents and Inventions.
The pac-man mask
According to a report in Mothership quoting Reuters, the mask is operated by squeezing a lever, which opens a slot in the front of the mask to allow a person to eat without taking it off.
In fact, the mask will also open automatically when your fork approaches it.
The company has already submitted a patent and once they are available in the market, the would most likely be sold at a premium of between RM3.72 to RM12.39 over regular surgical masks.
We don't know about this one. It may work for spaghetti but what about our favourite banana leaf spread?
