Close-it Automatic Robotic Mask

About the project

A mask that moves up/down automatically would be a dream to many but to me it is reality😎! Using only hand-gestures and no touch, spreading of germs becomes a 19th Century game! Scroll Down To See The Video/Demo.

A mask that moves up automatically would be a dream to many but to me it is reality😎!!
In this Covid-19 pandemic time "Close-It mask" is the perfect choice! With only hand-gestures and human sensing mechanisms this mask moves up and down automatically and reduces the spread of germs. Watch this video completely to see the demo.

This is me Neil, a young tech enthusiast! I make quality YouTube videos on my channel (CeneVspeed's Nish n Neil Rock!!) about Windows tips and tricks & custom-made robots. My goal is to make robots that could impact the world and make it a better place! I make robots by myself using Arduino. I learn on my own without going to classes. Even though I do not have a lot of materials and 3D printers, I use what I have. As the saying goes "It's not about what you have, it's about what you make out of it!"
