(Summit News) - The World Economic Forum is promoting a ‘smart mask’ that tracks your breathing and alerts you via an app if you wear it improperly or forget to wear it at all.
A video clip posted to the WEF’s official Twitter account this morning hypes the “the mask of the future,” designed by Chinese firm CirQ Technologies.
The smart mask tells you when to wash it, whether you’re wearing it properly, and alerts you via a sensor linked to a cellphone app when you’ve left it at home.
The environmental benefits of the mask are also touted as it would cut down on the number of disposable face masks that end up in land fills.
The fact that the mask can keep track of whether or not you’re wearing it let some respondents to suggest it could eventually be tied into a Chinese Communist-style social credit score system.
In China, the state has already linked its coronavirus tracking system to its social credit score program, dishing out punishments for those who fail to mask up or violate social distancing rules.
