NEW FRUIT / Mask Sterilizer

NEW FRUIT
NEW FRUIT

For now, the only way to stop the spread of Coronavirus is to keep physical distance covering faces with masks. Though, the shortage of masks is the serious problem. As the mask is a consumable product, it is difficult to supply if demand suddenly increases. NEW FRUIT is an open-source-based 3D printed mask sterilizer that cleans contaminated masks with ultraviolet. It aims to reduce the overall demand for masks by saving the usage of masks from non-infected people. Place the worn mask in the lid part and expose it to the ultraviolet lamp for about a minute, reducing its ATP to less than 20 RLU, which means the surface was properly cleaned.
