Despite widely varying local ordinances and workplace regulations, many experts agree that masks, in some fashion at least, are here to stay. And while they work to our advantage in preventing the spread of disease, scientists at MIT and Harvard have developed a new face mask that offers yet another critical feature. According to a recent paper published in the scientific journal Nature Biotechnology, a new study suggests that face masks can be used to actually detect COVID-19 cases in the wearer. The technology uses tiny biosensors that can be integrated into woven textiles. These sensors are programmable and can discover toxins or diseases, including COVID-19, which can be discovered on the wearer’s breath within 90 minutes.
