So here we are wondering when we will all be hanging out again together at concerts and live events.
As each state reopens and figures out how to make everything work, a company that usually spends its days working on “stages and experiences” for clients in gaming, technology, and music industries saw people flocking to the beach without protection. So, they decided to work on a suit that people can wear to concerts and festivals to protect themselves from COVID-19.
In an interview with NBC Los Angeles, Miguel Risueno, head of inventions for Production Club, said the Micrashell is “a solution for bringing people together” while still looking out for one another. “It’s a half suit that kind of takes your safety and your security — in terms of being close to airborne particles or viruses — to the next level,” he explained. “We said we still need to find a solution because people are still going out. People are still going to party and still skipping social distance measures… With our solution, we are trying to make space available for everyone because our solution depends on your own footprint rather than distancing yourself.”
A sketch of the Micrashell makes it look like a neon-striped space suit of sorts, like a cross of Buzz Lightyear andTron. There’s a N95 filter, an air ejection system, a “cell link pouch”, and even snap-in canisters for drinking and vaping. The way they see it, the latter was a necessary inclusion in the product. “It’s another thing you don’t need to remove the helmet for,” explained Risuneo, “because if you remove the helmet and the shield you are now compromised.”
