017 Be A Batman Body Shield

Carbon fibre body shield
Designed by: SUN DAYONG as part of CREATE CURES

This conceptual bodysuit design protects users by using UV light to sterilise airborne particals. Made from carbon fibre, the shield imitates bat wings to form a protective backpack.  Sun Dayong suggest that the internal wires could heat up to a temperature capable of killing off diseases. The project is called Be a Bat Man which references both the fictional superhero, Batman, and the widely suspected fact that bats have been found to be responsible for caring COVID-19 to humans. Hoping to find a financial backer for his design, Sun Dayong is offering his services as a designer for free.
