If there's one product everyone in the world needs right now, face masks are it. And according to the experts, they'll definitely need to be around for the next couple of months, if not years, due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. However, a glimmer of hope has shown through the dreary smoke that has become of this virus.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a Silicone-based face mask that incorporates the same filters as an N95 mask, can be sterilized and reused many times over. Best of all, the masks will go for only $15 once released to the public.
Solving a number of problems that the demand of masks have sparked, one that may stick out the most is the fact that between just March and May, Americans used an estimated 140 million N95 masks. iMASC which is the official name of these new masks, understand the urgency of this problem and even decided to include it in their names acronym "Injection Molded Autoclavable, Scalable, Conformable."
No timeline has been made official just yet, however the scientists are focused on making it available to the frontline healthcare workers first and eventually the general public thereafter.
Ultra rare is just the tip of the iceberg in describing the latest concoction by Aston Martin. Teaming up with Bowmore, a single-malt Whiskey dating all the way back to Scotland 1779, Aston Martin lent its DB5 piston, to create a bottle of whiskey unlike any other.
According to their website, Bowmore sees their partnership with Aston Martin as a "definitive moment in history" where they share a special 1964 distilled "Black Bowmore" in the limited-edition hybrid bottles. With only 25 bottles releasing later this Fall, the hefty £50,000 ($65,000) price tag.
