It’s amazing how well the human mind can adapt in the face of tragedy and rapid change. Creativity has been alive and well in the midst of the pandemic, as demonstrated by these super-cool inventions:
• Two UK companies have created Virustatic Shield, a mask that offers a 360-degree, anti-viral fabric coating.
• This Immunotouch wrist band, designed by the company Slightly Robot, buzzes when you come close to touching your face. It’s one of many smart watches designed to prevent infection.
• A Haitian teen in Port-au-Prince created a hands-free faucet, so community members can drink without fear of infecting their neighbors.
