Sun Dayong, co-founder of Penda architecture studio, created the "mobile protective device" that can be folded like a backpack. The frame for the suit is two carbon supports, on which a PVC film is stretched. It has built-in wires that heat the inside of the capsule to sterilize the environment around the user.
"The coronavirus does not survive at 56 degrees Celsius," Sun Dayong clarifies in a comment for Dezeen. - The PVC film cover looks like a car windshield. It also has a built-in heating wire for heating glass in winter."
Of course, the architect recalls, this is just a concept. To implement it, you need to solve some engineering problems. Sun Dayong hopes to be able to find a daredevil to take on the project. In this case, he is ready to provide his designer services for free.
The author of the costume does not exclude that the Be a Bat Man shields can be improved using Google Glass technology and used not only as protection against viruses. For example, consider them as capsules of your personal mobile space.
The name of the project “Be a Bat-Man” refers not only to a superhero who will use a suit to divide the boundaries of human and superhuman capabilities, but also to the coronavirus COVID-19, which has spread thanks to bats.
Sun Dayong explored the question: “Bats are mammals like humans, making them ideal carriers of the coronavirus. Their body temperature can rise up to 40 degrees Celsius during flight due to the accelerated metabolism, and then return to normal during rest. Such changes allow them to carry the virus and contain its effects on the body."
As long as the concept of a protective suit remains a concept, other methods can be used to help avoid contamination.
An outbreak of infection caused by the coronavirus COVID-19 occurred at the end of 2019 in the Chinese province of Hubei. Since then, more than 80 thousand people have been infected, more than 30 thousand people have been cured. The latest news on the coronavirus can be found here.>
