A new protective suit could be a reality for music events after coronavirus

A design company has shared its plans to issue a futuristic protective suit to help battle the risk of airborne diseases following the coronavirus outbreak. It would allow audiences to attend music festivals and events without concern in the months following the pandemic’s end.

California’s ‘Production Club’ have shared the plans for the ‘Micrashell’ and its helmet, filtration system and a whole host of LED lighting.

“Micrashell is a solution for bringing people together safety,” said Miguel Risueno, head of inventions for Production Club in an interview with NBC New York..

“It’s a half suit that kind of takes your safety and your security in terms of being close to airborne particles or viruses to the next level,” he added. It would allow music venues and events to go ahead without the need for social distancing.

Ideally, fans would rent the suits form venues and leave the sanitising of them down to the professionals. The suits also include the chance to snap-in canisters for drinking and vaping.

“We said we still need to find a solution because people are still going out. People are still going to party and still skipping social distance measures… With our solution, we are trying to make space available for everyone because our solution depends on your own footprint rather than distancing yourself,” Riseuno explained.
