Eating with a mask on
seems to be impossible
Or is it?
Location: Or Yehuda, Israel
This man claims he's invented a safe way to do it
(SOUNDBITE) (English) VICE PRESIDENT OF AVTIPUS PATENTS AND INVENTIONS, ASAF GITELIS, SAYING:"The mask will be opened mechanically by hand remote or automatically when the fork is coming to the mask. Then you can eat, enjoy, drink and you take out the fork and it will be closed, and you're protected against other people sitting with you."
Solid food can be gobbled up
in the style of Pac-Man
but other foods might get messy
(SOUNDBITE) (English) 29 YEAR-OLD MUSICIAN, RON SILBERSTEIN, SAYING:"I don't think this mask could hold with this kind of ice cream, it's dripping all over, I wouldn't want to wear it afterwards."
The company plans to start manufacturing soon
and has already submitted a patent
The mask would likely sell at 85 cents to $2.85
