Mask elf / facemask

Mask elf
Mask elf

Our design, which is inspired by cuttlefish turning different colors, is based on this question. The mask is designed to add a device in the inner core of the mask that would change color when it is exposed to water, with a supporting point that wearing a mask to breath will produce steam. With this device, only when the mask changes color completely does it indicate the service life of the mask is over. This will not only reduce the abandonment rate of the mask, but also improve environmental protection and safety.
