Summary Translation: no byline - LuxMea, a multidisciplinary design studio with offices in Toronto and Boston, is working with Health Canada and testing their products at the University of Toronto so they can distribute them to frontline healthcare workers. LuxMea has an idea for a face mask that goes beyond the usual cotton or polyester varieties. They have raised over $100,000 to begin the mass production of masks made by 3D printers. What sets these masks apart is that they will be made using AI (artificial intelligence) technology so that they are individually tailored to each wearer. Each mask will be lightweight, flexible and glasses-friendly to prevent fog — a common issue with many cotton masks. They will also come with replaceable filters, making them reusable, durable and washable. The way personalization will work is that measurements for each individual customer will be taken online to generate the desired fit. The masks with then be 3D-printed by LuxMea's partner Shapeways, the largest 3D printing manufacturer in the world, and delivered directly to the customer's home.
