Instead of a mask: will we soon be wearing these contraptions?

VYZR Technologies was founded in 2020 to develop alternatives to face masks. The result is literally insane.

“A practical design that is accessible to everyone”

“We believe that our real challenge is not COVID-19. It’s the absence of effective PPEs required to protect people from airborne pathogens and other environmental hazards.” the Canadian company writes on its website.

Their first product, the BioVYZR, is supposed to protect against germs and toxins by completely sealing off the head area. The air supply is ensured by two chargeable fans equipped with filters.

“The BioVYZR 1.0 packs this crucial technology into a practical design that is accessible to everyone,” the company describes its $498 product. Ten replacement filters cost $29. “We hope it helps you breathe as we move on to life after quarantine.”

“So are we all going to be Among Us now?”

Medical personnel have used similar suits for a long time. What is new is that this equipment has a fashionable look and is marketed to the general population. The BioVYZR is more reminiscent of the spacesuits from the online game Among Us, says an Instagram user.

A Twitter user who obviously did not understand that it was a crowdfunding project with a pre-order function complained on Twitter: Even after two months he still had no protective shield. “You deserve it for ordering such an unbearable costume,” replies another.
