HIRAX AIR: High-Technology Face Shield from Japan
Aired: Oct. 29, 2020
The process of manufacturing and the concept of the HIRAX AIR was well explained. It showed how these masks were important not only to the medical sector but also to various sectors such as the fashion industry and transportation. Using a graphical presentation to explain the antiviral and antibacterial dual characteristic of the mask was a brilliant idea.

This segment presented details of the design and production of the HIRAX Air face shield. I was honestly surprised at the level of technology and engineering applied to this product. By exploiting CAD/CAM design automation, together with innovative RIKEGUARD material, antireflection coatings, and a lot of design sophistication, the result was spectacular: a high- performance shield with user comfort, anti-viral properties, and stylish design. This was fun to watch!

This segment on new face shields was overall enjoyable. One of the best parts of watching this program is seeing Japanese innovation in its various forms and this exhibits it quite well. I thought that it struck a good balance between explaining the technology that goes into the shield, without getting too complicated.
