Saans / Face mask/Surgical Mask


The COVID-19 pandemic has called for cheap and effective masks to replace the less accessible N95 masks. Saans, a sustainable filtration kit, goes beyond just filtering the virus by providing an augmented reality where users can learn more about COVID-19 in their area. The main filter is made of 100% quilting cotton which provides efficient filtration along with immense breathability, keeping the air cool and fresh. Unlike current masks, all components of Saans are washable and reusable. By simply scanning a QR code on the mask, the user obtains local COVID-19 statistics, nearby testing centers, and prevention measures to keep the user safe.
