Rechargeable Face shield.
AIRSAFE was a project that was created during the height of the Pandemic with the purpose of offering safety and comfort at a time when it was hard to find.
A fan would push air through a 3-stage filtration system capable of eliminating COVID 19 and other pathogens. Airsafe also offered the ability for users to express themselves fully without hiding half of their face, recapturing a sense of connection that had been lost.
