Hack-a-Mask started as a weekend hacking project. Our goal is to design a mask that:
▸ can be made in 1 minute
▸ has good fit around the face
▸ uses only household materials
▸ requires no special equipments or skills
Inspired by concepts in origami, we created Hack-a-Mask. It takes only 8 folds to make. It wraps around the face well and it's quite comfortable.
Although we don't know the effectiveness of Hack-a-Mask, there are evidences (
to indicate that when you wear a mask, you protects others.
Universal adoption of masks by communities may help us flatten the curve of this coronavirus pandemic. #Masks4all
