COVID-19 Mask With Mechanical Mouth Expected To Fly Off The Shelves

So basically, when you get food to your mouth with one hand, you will have to pull the lever with the other to open the "mouth" on the mask

When countries start opening up the economy and allowing restaurants to take dine-in customers, people working in the food industry are puzzled not knowing how to ensure satisfying but safe dining experience.

What restaurants have to comply with includes barriers between tables, an accurate data base of diners in case someone’s test comes back positive, as well as single-use condiments.

The most pressing issue now is how diners can keep the face masks on while they have to put food into their mouths. Some restaurants require customers to wear a mask on when they go anywhere in the restaurant or when they talk to staff, but what about when they eat?

An Israel company has found a solution for this issue, and its invention can allow anyone to eat like usual without taking their masks off. The company made public its design earlier this week.

The mask features a mechanical mouth that can close and open when user pulls a hand-held lever. Honestly, despite its convenience, this mask looks a bit creepy.

According to Asaf Gitelis, Avtipus Patents’ vice president, the mouth hole on the mask will open automatically or manually when fork goes near it. With the mask, diners can drink, eat, all while protecting themselves and other around them.

This design is obviously more suitable for solid food and those who can gracefully sync the movement of their fork hand and their lever hand. According to Avtipus Patents, they can mass produce these creepy masks in the next few months at a price only a little bit more expensive than that of a normal mask.

Shut Your Mouth, a company in Houston recently launched its own line of masks with zipper that users can undone when they need to put something in their mouths. As you may have guessed, a zipper so close to your lips has the potential to cause injuries. So before anyone can access the website selling them, they have to agree on some terms saying that Shut Your Mouth will not be responsible for any of the accidents caused by its masks.
