Last July, Disney World instituted a policy that required guests to wear masks on the property, with the added step of denying ride photos to those who were not wearing them. The company recently briefly tested digitally adding masks in such cases. When Disney World reopened in July, the company made it clear that masks would be required on the premises at all times except in designated areas. Fo
A new flow visualization study from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) starkly demonstrates why face masks with exhalation valves are not effective for slowing the spread of COVID-19.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Coronavirus (COVID-19), Virus, Masks, Protection, Infections, NIST
With people wearing masks so much of the time now, it can be difficult to tell what expression is on someone's face. A new system can reportedly do so, though, utilizing cameras mounted on their headphones.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Facial, Cornell University, Masks
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have leveraged recent advances in 3D printing to produce electronic fibers that could be used as sensors for health monitoring, all while being invisible to the naked eye. The fibers were demonstrated as portable respiratory sensors, but the team says the approach can be used to produce low-cost sensors for a range of applications.Continue ReadingCategor
A new study from Florida Atlantic University has modeled how effective face shields and face masks with exhaust-valves are in blocking the dispersal of aerosol-sized droplets. The research suggests the growing use of these alternative face coverings may not be helpful in curbing the spread of COVID-19, and validate experts calling for the general public to primarily use cloth or surgical masks fo is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
