  • technical research almost done
  • basic components for development and tests found and ordered
  • connector base for mask developed and tested
  • mask tested


  • waiting for components delivery
  • developing new design, optimized for fast printing

Materials and components, required for development now:

  • new diving masks of 2-3 different types for connector testing


  • designing nice models for HEPA and active carbon filters
