New Face Mask Technology from Israel

Scientists from Technion, Israel’s prestigious institute of technology in Haifa, have invented a new face mask that cleans itself by using power from your cell phone charger. Once powered, it takes 30 minutes for the mask to heat up to 158 degrees, a temperature that will kill the virus, disinfecting its inner layer of carbon fiber mesh.

Leave it to Israel to invent a mask that plugs in and cleans itself. This self-cleaning face mask will make sure you’re not getting sick through the mask that’s designed to protect you. This is why they call Israel not the Silicon Valley…but the Silicon Wadi.
