Due to the lack of protection masks in the COVID-19 crisis, we created a concept for a scalable open source protection mask production line that helps to produce respiratory masks quickly and easily. The aim is to provide as many respiratory masks as possible to the general population. The project consortium had to be disbanded, but the project is open to be picked up by a new team of volunteers.

could provide whole Italy
Our project concept is completely open sourced so that industrial engineers from all over the world could construct as many containers as needed for their countries.
Moreover, industrial experts are more than welcome to elaborate the given open source and share the upgraded version with other worldwide professionals.
