    Two key notes:
    1. I misspoke around the 2-minute mark. The fans pull air *out* through one set of filters, while other vents allow air to passively come in through other filters.
    2. I have had one plugged (it, like all other items in my world, charges via USB-C) in on the counter and running now on the low speed setting for over a day. Green light, seems fully charged still. Going to try high speed next! Will update.
    UPDATE: 48+ hours with the fan set to high, and when the USB cable is plugged into power, the internal status LED light is still bright green. I'm going to say it's feasible that this will run More or less continuously as long as you don't mind being tethered to a charge cable (The included one is quite long. Seems to be 6 feet)

      @MrKonc I would suppose it depends on how long the external power bank has volts.

      Thanks for the beta! Initially they made it sound like it would NOT charge while plugged in. Meaning it would be fine for US flights (that weren't more than 8 hours total), but not so much for international travel. This is great news for my brother in law who's British and needs to go to England a couple of times a year for his business and of course to visit family. With charging ports at most airline seats, one can count on this taking you all the way to your destination overseas!

      Would the continuous charging work with a decent powerbank as external power source? Or is more juice needed?

    I wore mine in an Uber to an appointment. After the appointment, I walked home with it. Huge mistake on my part as you noted, that’s not the intended use. It not only fogged but the fog from the top condensed into huge drips of water down the shield. I had to stop and wipe it down. At that point, it fogged around the mouth. Again, I used it wrong with the exception of the Uber ride where it was fine. But I think it may be hard for some to justify $300 for minimal, special case usage.

    Whoever came up with the term "Social Distancing" should be kicked with pointy steel toed boots right where it hurts the most and for the longest and that's not the crotch contrary to popular belief because let's be absolutely honest there is zero social about maintaining a 6 feet of distance between each other and by choosing the wrong words to describe something you can and will immediately draw negative feelings about whatever you are trying describe or name.
    Therefore instead of using what quite frankly is a rather negative term "Social Distancing" I propose a better name / term would be "Personal Circle of Space" or PCS for short.
    As far as the Microclimate Mask it is interesting and think it might be a good product for office work or air travel but personally I have more concerns about wearing one outside than just having the face shield fog up primarily the lack of spatial awareness that occurs when wearing a full faced helmet/hood of any sort. Just think how unaware people become with their ear pod/head phones especially when they are texting or playing a game on the attention deficit device I mean phone. So I definitely agree with D that wearing one of these things while walking outside or anywhere else where you physical safety is a consideration because if I were up to no good and saw someone wearing one of these devices that person would immediately become my prime target.
    Thanks for the review and the "hacks" to improve them.

      Was it then? Cheaper for whom, society as a whole? Point being: It's usually not the actual cost at all, it's the lack of credible signals and non-bad-news-generating solutions ("can I sell this to my constituents/voters/shareholders?", "will there be public outrage if 1 out of 1000000 of that proposed solution goes terribly wrong or gets exploited") that makes the difference in public expenses.

    Super interesting concept and I’ve been curious if any developments in this arena had been made during the pandemic. Guess I’ve just been in the wrong loops since this is the first exposure I’ve had, but I really like the fact that off the shelf parts were used in the design to lower the cost/difficulty for adoption. Great presentation on it! Also curious on your backpack setup, looks pretty functional and nifty, but other than a few cameos in other videos I haven’t seen you focus on it. Any chance at an overview/insight on the bag? Cheers!

    Pair that with this and really turn some heads:
    Regarding flying, would it break any laws about recording in a secure area if you mounted a camera inside your pelican cases triggered by the lid opening to watch lock cutting idiots play with your guns? Not sure if a small warning somewhere on the case would suffice for consent legally. If so laser it onto the lock itself.

    For the drinks straw hole, would something like a rubber sphincter work as good as better? As for any fogging issues, a page could be torn out of the NASA playbook and duct airflow over the inside of the faceplate. Have to admit I would prefer positive air pressure over negative, but part of me wonders if it was an attempt to "fail safe" in the event of the batteries dying while your asleep.

    Well, I have a much more pessimistic view of the shit show aka COV#@1984. I see it as a potentially serious virus with significant political opportunities for reshaping society and getting more sheep in line and obedient to their masters. I saw this product and thought " well, it's a refined piece of tech that actually doesn't look totally ridiculous. And considering how questionable our air quality is in general, it's not a bad idea even if I'm completely right about my assessment of this scamdemic. And, what a great opportunity to thwart the AI facial recognition that relies not lazy ignorant and corrupt humans to verify, or not, it's results and output. If their global surveillance system can't see my face, or it's obscured enough to be "unmatchable" then there's less chance of said AI and humans being able to destroy my life based on false positives. I'm in". I know. Real tin-hat thinking. But just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean I'm wrong lol. So, thanks for the review. It's expensive enough that I need quality feedback before I make my final decision either way.

    You could measure the power draw to know how much current is needed to run without depleting the battery charge. From the internal shots and pic at 2:04 it looks like there are two fans rated 12V 0.24A or ~5.8W, seems achievable from most modern USB sources.

    I'm getting ready to manage a drinking port in my AIR and wanted to ask for your feedback.
    Although I'm a demel novice, I'm comfortable with small hand power tools.
    I believe I see a tapered grinding stone and sanding drum in the image you included.
    I'm concerned with cracking the mask.
    Is it as simple as boring a hole with the grinding stone and finishing it with a little sanding?
    Would you mind summarizing the steps for establishing the drinking port hole?

    I like the concept, but HEPA filters are problematic with virus particles. See
    for a detailed study of why an N95, or better yet N100 common respirator filter may be more effective. Filtering air in and out is great, but they need to upgrade the filters to provide real protection.

      Which is odd, because with just a little modding, he could have addressed all of his issues. I've been wearing mine for a couple months now everywhere and, even outside in the cold morning air, wiping down the inside of the dome with a little Rain-X Anti-Fog will handily prevent fog from degrading your visibility. Yes, the moisture will still condense on the dome, but the droplets will spread out due to the hydrophilic coating and not scatter incoming light as much as without it. At most, your view gets slightly "wavier" with the uneven diffraction.

    How much does it distort vision? Interested in using it in front of a screen and any existing solution that covers the eyes distorts the screen badly. As someone who is expected to sit in a cubicle away from others and stare at a screen all day, I am hoping for a solution that has active ventilation and still can be used with high-resolution content. Especially watching your videos on a spare display hidden in a corner.

    Regarding fan noise and communication with others, AirPods Pro with noise cancellation and remote listening turned on would let you hear others better while tuning out the fan noise. You would still have to speak up for them to hear you but you could cancel out the mask and fans with that arrangement. Since the remote listening turns your phone into the microphone, you would need it closer to them than sitting in your pocket as well. Obviously, this is assuming you own the required Apple hardware to make that happen. I’m not sure if Android devices provide this type of functionality or not.
