This Mask Opens and Closes So That You Can Eat without Taking It off

Just pump the handle to mechanically open and close the seam in the center. Asaf Gitelis, a vice president in the Israeli company that invented it, told Reuters that this will change the mask-wearing experience in restaurants:

“Then you can eat, enjoy, drink and you take out the fork and it will be closed, and you’re protected against the virus and other people sitting with you.”
The company said it plans to start manufacturing the mask within months and had already submitted a patent. It said it would likely sell at a 3 to 10 shekel ($0.85 to $2.85) premium above the price of the simple pale blue medical masks many Israelis wear.

Restaurants in Israel are, at the moment, open only for takeout and delivery. This mask could change that limitation.
