iSphere: bubble-like homemade helmet could make coronavirus commuting safer

Germany: Could this bubble-like device be the answer to getting the coronavirus-ravaged economy started again? The brainchild of German art collective Plastique Fantastique, the idea for the iSphere was conceived following the news that from April 27th 2020, it is mandatory to cover mouth and nose in public transports in Berlin. Marco Canevacci and Yena Young, Plastique Fantastique directors, explain: „The iSphere is an open-source project that everybody can produce, develop and improve. We taped two transparent hollow hemispheres together and cut a hole that fits our heads. The whole procedure took approx. 30 minutes and the costs for the material are around €20. Additional gadgets can give a unique touch to any iSphere: it can have a sunshade, a mirrored layer, an integrated microphone, a speaker, a ventilator, or a snorkel. „The Coronavirus is changing our relation to each other and affecting our perception of reality. This virus is very democratic: it spreads over the borders, has no preference for gender, social, cultural, or economic status. In this time of lockdown, we wonder about the mutation of our social life and the effects of the deprivation of physical touch.” The iconic design is inspired by the science fiction comics of the 50s and the creations of the utopian movements of the 60s. The iSphere is a funny and serious object that stimulates how to approach this exceptional situation.

Until a scientific consensus crystallises, we'll need Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that can effectively prevent airborne transmission of COVID-19. That’s why we made the BioVYZR.” With its space-age aesthetic, the BioVYZR 1.0 is a stark departure from other types of Powered Air Purifying Respirators.

***EXCLUSIVE*** Jack and Shirley Godley were brought together in 1957 when Shirley answered a pen pal advertisement in the paper by a seaman looking for friendship.

Unbelievably Shirley, just 15 at the time, lived just five minutes away from Jack, then 19, in Sheffield, South Yorks.

Ewelme, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom: A tawny owl felt like a right twit-twoo after getting stuck inside a fireplace. RSPCA inspector Lauren Bailey was called to a home in Ewelme, Oxfordshire, on Saturday 25 April after a family heard noises coming from their chimney. She said: „The family had been hearing noises from the chimney and fireplace for a few days but had no idea there was a bird trapped inside until he fell all the way to the bottom. The first they realised was when they saw him peering out through the fireguard - he had his feet up against the grill like he was waving and asking for help!” Lauren, wearing PPE and following social distancing guidance, went to the home and managed to remove the grill and catch the bird. The RSPCA advises fitting a special chimney cowl to prevent birds from flying or falling down the chimney.
