The device is intended to be used in restaurants, so people can eat their food safely without risk of contracting coronavirus. The remote controls a lever, very similar to a bicycle brake, opens and closes the mask.

Asaf Gitelis, vice president of Avtipus Patents and Inventions, said that the mask could also open when food got near it using a sensor, according to Reuters. “Then you can eat, enjoy, drink and you take out the fork and it will be closed, and you’re protected against the virus and other people sitting with you,” said Gitelis during a demonstration.
