Today the spin-off of Politecnico di Milano, Narvalo, launches the campaign on Kickstarter for the industrialization of the second version of its mask: "Active", which contains some important smart electronic components. In the device there is a sensor capable of reading three parameters: pressure, temperature and humidity, which provide a precise and direct reading of the user's respiratory rate and regulate the speed of a fan. This fan extracts the heat and humidity that usually accumulate inside, making breathing more comfortable. The valve can be blocked by inserting the special COVID-19 “plug”. The Narwhal App interacts with the sensors of the mask to report the respiratory rate and monitor the quality of the air along the user's movements. Urban Active filters have a 99% guaranteed filtration level and protect against fine dust, smog, pollen, viruses and bacteria and, thanks to the activated carbon layer, are able to filter odors.
