Protective face mask to inform if there is a danger of infection nearby – this is a very real possibility in the near future, after the 27-year-old Romanian designer and engineer Burzo Ciprian invented a smart face mask with a biosensor, reports the online publication “Calvert Journal”.

It can track the number of pathogens in the surrounding air, collect data, calculate the risk of Covid-19 infection and map the app’s users in the area.

Ciprian’s invention “Social Mask” won the prize in an MIT Media Lab competition. for a high-tech prototype last fall and is still under development. However, the creative invention is sure to rethink the role of personal protective equipment for the face.
