Don't Worry, By The Time The Next Pandemic Strikes We'll All Have Wearable Shields

avatar

Howdy folks and greetings from the Great Plains of North Texas!

That's right, an architecture firm in China has designed what they call a "Wearable Shield" which will kill any deadly viruses with it's UV Radiation. Supposedly.

It hasn't been tested yet but they're looking for volunteers in case you're interested. lol.

Here's what this contraption looks like. I find it goofy looking but hey, if it saves lives...

Can you imagine New York City or Tokyo's bustling streets with everyone wearing these things, bouncing off each other? lol.

The top, bottom and back are open too, not sure how that would work.

Here's a view from above:

Plus it looks a little heavy to me. I guess if you're frail or a petite female you're out of luck.

You'd have to have good balance too, because you couldn't use your hands to steady yourself!

I like the concept, but they may need a better method of creating personal bubbles though. Although UV light does kill flu viruses and they have large lamps for buildings and so forth.

I really have a hard time seeing myself wearing one of these, how about you guys? lol.

PS- Here's a bit of good news from the Aldi grocery store chain. I've been impressed by their move to more natural and organic products and now they've gone even farther.

They just announced that the packaging of their suppliers must be 100% recyclable, compostable, or reusable by the year 2025. That's gonna take some doing so it'll be interesting to see what they come up with.

2 thoughts....yes no one will be seen wearing that bubble thing! And 2nd thought, I am as well impressed with Aldi and what they have done over the past 20 years. I enjoy getting quality food there for a decent price!

Howdy today sir simms50! I agree that the bubble shield would be ridiculous. lol. Yeah, Aldi's used to be kind of a joke to us but now it's our favorite store!

Howdy Janton, my long time no see friend. Hey wearing that thing looks like space aliens 👽. And as you say that would be really funny bumping as people go around the streets. Have you gotten your yet? I don’t think they have my size and don’t think I’d want one anyway. 😅😆

lol..I don't think those are going to go over with very many people. Most of us would rather take our chances than wear something like that. lol. Thanks so much for commenting, good to see you!

Hi Cowboy! I really can’t see that bubble thingie catching on as it is too cumbersome and claustrophobic looking.

Good to see the grocery store getting into the recycling.

You'd wear it? You're probably be the only person who would be totally safe then, most people would be too self-conscious! It'll be interesting to see if they actually produce something like that.

I would want it to be more functional. An exoskeleton that protects from biohazards, chemical weapons and other external threats would be great. Relying on our skin and simple fabrics is something we have been doing since the stone age.
Give me built-in tazer, bear mace, a few switchblades, re-enforced knuckles, and no one will dare make me feel self-conscious.

It IS pretty creepy. Are you able to take in nutrients or supplements to keep your immune system strong? And are there any coronavirus cases there yet?

Howdy again ddn688! Well that is not bad yet, only 2 cases and for most people the effects are not serious but it is scary for the elderly. They've started shutting down all the schools, concerts, and almost all public events here.

I assume your government is talking of doing that also or have already?

Me too sir enginewitty. I think they'll come up with a high tech apparatus that isn't so bulky and heavy but still provides a personal bubble of protection.

Thanks @janton for your kind words i just really hope that this will be all over soon it's certainly not doing anyone any good health wise or financially.

Howdy today bigsambucca! Yes I agree. Even if it only lasts for a couple of months that will ruin many families financially. I think homelessness is going to explode with businesses having to shut down for awhile and people losing their income who were just making it paycheck to paycheck.

What is is like in Bangkok, are they shutting everything down yet?

It is really sad times i hope they find a vaccine real soon i was suppose to be leaving Bangkok at the end of this month and going to Europe but i do think it's safer to stay here at the moment. Thailand is closing boarders also and seems to be pretty well in control over here.

It's good to hear that they're getting ahead of the virus spread over there. Can I ask what the trip to Europe is for?

Yes they have it pretty well organized here as far as precautions go and the warmer weather helps as the virus can't live above 28 C . I was going to Europe to meet up with some long lost cousins and friends i haven't seen for a while i have postponed that for now.

Howdy today bigsambucca! Well if it dies out at 82C then we'll have hotter temperatures than that here in TX in another week, that's good news! I hope you can to the Europe after a couple of months when this thing fizzles out.

(Edited)

This bit is from that article i was reading...

"On the other hand it is good to know that the Wuhan virus or corona virus is not heat resistant and dies at a temperature of 26 to 27 degrees. Therefore, drink plenty of hot water such as tea and herbs. It's not a cure, but it's good for the body. Drinking hot water is effective for killing all viruses."

Yep i still will get to Europe if we don't get to a recession or depression before hand but the worst is to come yet. Stay safe and healthy have a great day and glad the hot weather is coming to you @janton 👍

It would certainly make for great photo fodder, though! Weird concept. They would have been better off making it a complete mushroom top, with the back closed off too. A hazmat suit would be more comfy.

Yeah I'm not sure about this design and I think they'll come up with something better to provide a personal bubble effect but I don't know how that will be done.

Looks alien to me. On a side note, hope things are good your side. All across UAE schools and universities and pubs and all outdoor activities have come to an indefinite halt😚

That is very smart. They are starting to shut everything down here too. I just heard a virologist today who said it was going to take 3 to 6 months to get through this thing.

3 to 6 months may be right but govt here is doing all they can or need to bring back life into the city and around.

Yes it sounds like they are ahead of the problem and hopefully it won't take nearly that long for the virus to die out.
