While face masks that cover the nose and mouth are becoming a problem worldwide, a new type of mask that does not cover the nose and mouth was patented for the first time in the world in Korea last June. (Patent registration number of Korea, 10-2412492)
According to Korean inventor Yun, this mask, called MSK (Magnetic maSK), can be worn while eating as it does not cover the nose and mouth. It also effectively blocks viruses that infect the respiratory organs, such as COVID-19, and provides a sterilization function.
Unlike the current face mask that covers the nose and mouth, this mask is worn around the neck like a neckband fan worn in summer, and when magnetic power and wind power are emitted from both ends of the neckband, the virus-contaminated saliva or aerosol can not access nose and mouth.

In addition, viruses remaining around the wearer's nose and mouth are sterilized as soon as they are exposed to sterile LED light that is harmless to the eyes and skin.
This device, called MSK, uses magnetism as a key function, and when magnetism is released, water droplets, a diamagnetic substance, are easily pushed away from the magnetism.
Since the saliva and aerosol that carry the virus are all micrometer-level water droplets, once the magnetism is activated, the saliva or aerosol cannot approach the nose and mouth.
According to inventor Yun, wind power can blow food away during meals, and sterilization LED lights can cause glare at night, but magnetism can always be maintained. This is a core technology of the present invention and was recognized for its originality and received an original patent.
In addition, by turning the joint part and directing the sterilization LED light down the face, contaminated hands or belongings can be easily disinfected without hand sanitizer, which is expected to easily prevent virus diseases such as Monkey Pox(M-pox) infection.

According to a Korean invention expert, this product (MSK) solves all the problems of the current face mask, which can not be worn during meals. The advantage of not covering the wearer's nose and mouth is being evaluated as an innovative product without opposition from those who insist on anti-masks in the United States and Europe.
Another South Korean expert who evaluates the latest electronics said that more than 1.6 billion products could be sold if about 20% of the world’s 8 billion people bought them. He also said that different versions could be developed and marketed, including daily use, children's, sports, patient's and sleeping's. In other words, for the next 20 years, which is the patent period, product manufacturers can monopolize a huge market.
