High tech sensor, full protection and a smartphone app to tell you how you're doing. How can you do without it?

Now facemasks are an essential part of our life, probably for the next year at least, maybe it’s time to consign all those low-tech surgical masks to the medical waste bin along with all your discarded needles. Now you can suffer the pandemic in comfort and relative safety with the Airpop Active Plus with Halo.

For the Macfilos reader who has everything. Airpop your way to Covid freedom.

The Airpop Active Plus (with Halo…) claims to offer full protection and even has a smartphone app so you can check up on pollutants and, even, your breathing rate. To reassure those within two meters, the mask has a flashing coloured light around the sensor. It pulsates in sync with your breathing, and you can even choose the colour from the app. I suppose it could become a useful part of a mating ritual.

There’s only one snag. This standard of alleged Covid-banishing perfection comes at a price. It will cost £150 or $150 when it comes to the market in the middle of this month. Furthermore, since it uses removable inserts, it could be expensive to run. A pack of four inserts will set you back £20 or $20, but one insert will give you 40 hours of sanitised breathing. In fairness, Airpop does have cheaper masks that look interesting, so it’s a good idea to look at the website.

If you fancy a bit of respiratory freedom, watch this video before making up your mind:

  1. Premium Masks? The folks in Wetzlar missed a trick here. I am sure that a gold plated edition with ‘mock-croc’ skin can’t be far off. Every cloud etc.

  2. Perhaps guys I would keep your cash in your wallets. Not because of an end to the potential of needing them for a few years at least. But because there is emerging data that the Astra Zeneca vaccine reduces transmission rates, so at least stops us all spreading the virus at reasonably high rates. There is hopes other vaccines do similar things, but it is a little early to say they do.

    And further on, a little research does reveal that Astra Zeneca have an Anti-Gen jab moving towards human trials, which allows you to be injected with antibodies, so your body will reproduce antibodies and could provide a years worth of cover post jab. An alternative to the vaccine potentially, although a few years down the line.

    And then the final bit of positivity. if we all need a yay moment.

    Spanish flu slowly dissipated without a vaccine within three years.

    However an unpublished science report from a group of Danish scientists studying the Russian flu outbreak of the late 1890’s, concludes it was not a flu outbreak, but a bovine coronavirus. It took five years to be adopted by the human race, and yes they sadly lost a few people. However they did not have vaccines, and oddly I believe today it is incorporated in the flu jab – purely because we believed it was a flu, until it was studied more closely.

    Hope is coming folks.
