Worried about breathing in other peoples COVID-infected breath and want to look like a Stig from Top Gear inspired cyborg? I might have just the thing for you. Blanc is a Kickstarter project that offers a full HEPA-enabled protection whiles simultaneously making you look like you are from the future...or playing The Cube on ITV.
For just $99 you can ensure you are kept well away from the bad 'vid and look like the third member of Daft Punk - a win/win surely? Here is the official blurb: "Introducing Blanc — the one and only full-face modular mask. Blanc protects your eyes, nose and mouth from the outside world. All air is filtered through 2 high-efficiency reusable and replaceable HEPA filters, ensuring clean, fresh air with every breath.
"Keep your identity secure behind its opaque changeable front panels. Adjust the mask to your outfit or any occasion in 2 quick movements. Unclip the existing front panel, and effortlessly snap the new one in place. Blanc is not just a face mask. Its modular design allows you to customize your own Blanc to your needs, and express your persona to the world."
But wait, there is more! "Add-on module: voice modulation will be released shortly after the campaign and will be fully functional with your Kickstarter Blanc mask. Add-on modules: climate control and Bluetooth will be released shortly after the campaign and will be fully functional with your Kickstarter Blanc mask."

I really want one of these masks, I'm not sure if I would ever wear it outside but the chance to look like a cyborg is right up my straza. Imagine how good it would look with Rorschach's inkblot pattern on the front!!! Click on the image below to watch the promotional video...
