Airable / Face Shield

Airable
Airable

Airable focused on solving the problem of accumulating breathing when wearing the existing mask. We feel stuffy because heat exchange and oxygen supply are not smooth, and skin problems occur due to long-term physical contact with the mask. It is not just a health issue, but also a big problem for deaf people that the mouth is covered up when communicating. To solve these problems, the idea was made in an air curtain that creates a physical barrier without contact. It absorbs air from the surrounding area and forms an external barrier to block harmful substances, and releases air from the mouth to the downside to make it easier to breathe.
