For those who aren’t so keen on wearing face masks, there’s a new solution
The dystopian-looking protective helmet is made with a see-through bubble at the front and a washable fabric that covers the head and neck over the back. Bubble Boy vibes? We think so. The MicroClimate Air also has a built-in ventilation system that utilizes high-powered fans to pull air through filters in the mask. The company promises a “fresh and fog-free” life for helmet wearers, who’ll have to pay $199 for the comfort.
It’s called MicroClimate Air, and it’s an acrylic visor that doesn’t fog up
And which has a built-in ventilation system
The new futuristic product is the brainchild of Michael Hall, an entrepreneur who was skiing when the idea for these helmets popped into his head. “Michael Hall envisioned a new wearable whilst skiing with his family in the mountains of Utah,” the website reads.
The MicroClimate Air sells for $199
And has four hours of battery life
“As he spoke with his children on the lift, he could not see their faces. They were obstructed by ski masks, goggles, and other clothing. This equipment quickly gets wet, cold, and gross. He envisioned a new kind of wearable that would create a ‘micro climate’ around the head.”
To make it comfortable, cushion liners are included
While the helmet is made of a washable fabric
The MicroClimate Air website also says that there are nine US patent applications that protect the new helmet, including its airflow design and the washable filter fabric. The company also notes that it “works well with AirPods.”
It’s all fine and dandy, but what do people think? Well, their opinions are… divided, to say the least.
But people are unsure about the new, futuristic product
