At least innovation in the aesthetic sense, ergo it looks better than an average face mask. Not surprisingly it’s a Japan-centric product where exists a huge market for face masks. Face masks came in vogue as an accessory across Asia’s bustling cities and became further ingrained in the public imagination post-SARS and Avian Flu. Now a company called Prosperity network Inc. has outed the Masclear, which is a clever mash up of the words mask and clear.
As its name suggests, Masclear is your average face mask except there’s transparent film covering the mouth other than antiseptic fabric. Why the difference? It’s supposed to allow patients to see the smile on the faces of the nurses treating them. At least this is the main idea. Also, seeing a person’s mouth clearly means communication is much clearer.
Masclear is currently selling in packets of 5 pieces/masks each. Thanks to a spotty Google translate, viewing the product page is an exercise in mind-numbing frustration. We think this might do well though as a wardrobe accessory in a fan film.
