Building face masks by modifying full face snorkeling masks to work with various filters
About the Project
We're building a reusable face mask that protects people from coronavirus by covering the user's entire face and filtering all the air that a user breathes.
The mask is made of (1) a full face snorkeling mask, (2) a filter, and (3) a plastic adapter to connect 1 and 2.
The design is based on the Pneumask created by the Prakash Lab at Stanford.
