  • bubble bunker

    I just found this "Bubble Bunker" , which I thought was
    an interesting concept :

    should be cheap (?), maybe add it to your sickroom

    or even use it for sleeping in the same room with others
    who are infected with "normal" respiratoric pathogens,
    I don't know
    or even to protect yourself from mosquitoes when sleeping

    what do you think

    I'd need a computer with internet in it ...
    This Bubble Bunker® measures 8' x 9' x 5.5' high and hold between two and three people.
    It is designed with a 110 Volt inflator/filtration system which incorporates a HEPA filter.

    surprisingly they say:
    > Viruses are not filtered by HEPA filters, since viruses are much smaller
    > than what is possible to filter.

    well, those who sell N95 masks tell us otherwise.
    viruses cluster together in droplets or bind to dust particles
    even particles smaller than the filter are being filtered
    (because of Brown motion ? I forgot) There is a minimum
    at ~0.2mym, below that the filtering increases again
    And there are ulpa-filters etc., they even use it in vacuum cleaners already
    or air-purifiers

    can viruses penetrate plastic ?

    I can imagine a transportable halfbody-bubble-bunker, that goes with the person
    for bus,train,subway,car,waiting room,
    I'm interested in expert panflu damage estimates
