Thanks to a bizarre new pandemic-proof wearable, you can now look like an astronaut plucked out of an early 90s pre-Daft Punk helmet blueprint.
For $199, you can squeeze your head into MicroClimate's freakish "AIR" helmet, which the company is touting as a safe and stylish alternative to protect against COVID-19. More of a clumsy fishbowl than a trendy fashion statement, the new wearable cycles both inlet and outlet air through HEPA filters and contains a patented acrylic visor, which offers a clear view of the cosmonaut DJ behind it.
Despite its Black Mirror-esque appearance and inherently comical existence, though, the "AIR" model comes with a laundry list of impressive tech specs. In addition to its state-of-the-art fan-powered ventilation system, the unit is USB-rechargeable, contains cushioned liners for comfort, and has a four-hour battery life if you'd like to attend a rave with your fellow NASA dropouts. The only thing you really need to worry about is how to scratch your nose.
Twitter, of course, is having a field day.
