Imagine living in a world where you can’t hear anything or listen to someone speak. It must be frustrating, especially since everyone is now masked up.
This Smile Mask design has a clear window that allow our lips to be seen when worn. Thus, allowing lip-readers to be able understand us better when we communicate.
In May 2020, I designed my first prototype where the see-through window is sewn in. A month later, I came up with a second prototype where the window is removable, hence eradicting all concerns with washing instructions. The window will fog at times, but clears up during a pause. To minimise fogging, please refer to the last video at the bottom of the page.
This video was made so that more of such masks may be made for those who need them.
