The SprayCare band may appear to be a Spider-Man web shooter of sorts, but upon closer inspection, you’ll realize it’s a disinfectant bracelet that sanitizes everything around you. Put simply, strap it onto your wrist, press a button, and the atomizer does its magic. Each mist is capable of covering a surface around 5-inches long and 2.5-inches wide. All of the droplets are evenly dispersed so you won’t need several applications, and best of all, it accepts any liquid hand sanitizer.

Germicidal ultraviolet light harnesses a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that contains short waves of radiant energy, called UV-C. This wavelength is further away from the visible spectrum than other forms of UV light, basically gives viruses a lethal sunburn. If you were to implement this into a portable face mask cleaner, it would probably look something like the Samsung 0° Clean by Jungkwang Hwang.

LG Electronics has just unveiled the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier mask and it’s set to hit select markets beginning in the fourth quarter. Unlike other masks, this one has two H13 HEPA filters that supply fresh, clean air indoors as well as outside. With its battery-powered dual fans and patented Respiratory Sensor, the mask can detect the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath, thus adjusting the dual three-speed fans on the fly.
Getting a haircut before the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a big deal, but now, many states have yet to reopen their barber shops and hair salons. So, your options are either a self-cut, or in the case of engineer Shane Wighton, better known on Youtube as Stuff Made Here, built a haircut robot. This isn’t a simple robotic arm that simply buzzes your hair, but rather one equipped with scissors, sensors, probes, and lots more high-tech gadgetry.
