Honda has just invented a mask (Kurumask) for its vehicles. This little invention is made to fit over your existing cabin filter and features a surface made up of millions of micro zinc-phosphate thorns/barbs that catch and kill the COVID-19 virus.
As the barbs are on a microscopic level, the entire Honda Kurumask is safe to touch. Designed with the team at the Kitasato Research Center for Environmental Science, Honda comments that the Kurumask originally was going to take several years to develop, but due to the urgency of the ongoing pandemic, they were able to expedite the project. Priced at around $65 USD, the Kurumask can remove 99.8 percent of airborne COVID-19 droplets in roughly 15 minutes, and is good for 9,300 miles.
