Micrashell, socialize safely
Production Club, Los Angeles
An airborne virus has extended across the globe creating a pandemic, changing the way people perform their everyday tasks across the world. Social distancing measures have been introduced by the authorities as a way of slowing down the spread of the disease. However – beyond the obvious benefits of this action – there are certain drawbacks that make it only viable for a limited period of time, like its toll on mental health or its impact on the economy.
Additionally, we are seeing an increase in violent protests to stop social distancing measures, politicians criticizing the strategy’s effectiveness and even citizens refusing to follow them, putting a higher percentage of the population at greater risk.
Micrashell was born as a socially responsible solution to safely allow people to interact in close proximity. Specifically designed to satisfy the needs of nightlife, live events and entertainment industries, Micrashell is a virus-shielded, easy to control, fun to wear, disinfectable, fast to deploy personal protective equipment (PPE) that allows socializing without distancing.
