Air compressors in the ear cups drive purified air to the wearer’s mouth and nose via a clip-on visor


This morning.

Via The Guardian:

Dyson has announced its first wearable product that builds the firm’s air purification expertise into a set of Bluetooth noise cancelling headphones aimed at city dwellers wanting to avoid polluted air.

Quite unlike anything the company has made before, the Dyson Zone is sure to draw quizzical looks. It is a set of large, plush headphones with a plastic mask-type contraption that connects from ear-to-ear across the wearer’s mouth and looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.

It delivers purified air to the mouth and nose while simultaneously tackling noise pollution through its active noise cancelling technology.

This afternoon.

Via Dear Prudence agony aunt in The Slate:

‘I want to see my beautiful husband’s face again. I want to kiss him on the lips romantically, like we used to, and not through a piece of fabric. (He does not change his mask very often and it is often smelly and soiled.) And I don’t want to feel judged by him for my own behavior, which I consider reasonable.’


Shouldn’t have married Nigel in the first place.

‘Beyond Noh’ – a hypnotically rhythmical cycle though 3,745 masks: from ancient painted faces to pop culture mugs and the ubiquitous face-pants of the pandemic.

Created by mask enthusiast Patrick Smith, the sequence combines photos from museum archives, galleries, crowdsourced submissions and Smith’s own private collection. He sez of it:

To me, masks are an interesting way to view humanity. It seems to me that every culture in the history of the world has participated in some form of mask making, whether it’s for performance, ritual, protest, or utility.

The Labour leader apologised on Wednesday morning and said he was distracted while watching Manchester United’s Champions League encounter against RB Leipzig.
