3D Printed mask strap reinforcements: Duck Boots #3Dprinting #COVID19 #MedTwitter
People are finding that sterilizing used masks and dealing with masks in general come with a common problem: Strap breakage. The materials are not designed for prolong or rough use. Christopher Van posts a neat solution on Twitter:
I’ve been developing a solution within @PanFabBoston for strap brackets on duck bill masks allowing them to be used longer with sterilization even if the straps break (they will). I fondly call them: Duck Boots! Rough draft, easy to 3D print and holds well. #MedTwitter #Covid_19
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
