When will someone make a Darth Vadar's mask, along with helmet with build in AR glasses, air conditioning and bluetooth speakers? May be make it in white so that it won't absorb heat from the sun in hot places, and black in cold places.

That's dumb. Now a Bane mask I could get behind...

Oh Will.I.am, what will you think of next? How about a flashy device to rewind VCR tapes? Or maybe some kind of futuristic asbestos based winter jacket. I know, how about something to do with vinyl records? Those are always super trendy. How about a new type of vinyl where instead of a needle reading grooves on a piece of plastic they could use some kind of laser to..... oh wait.

He's just another rich a$$hole trying to profiteer from a pandemic that kills people. This disgusts me. People are losing their jobs, their homes and their lives so what does he do? He comes out with a ridiculous symbol of consumerism, completely ignoring the fact that consumerism has been very damaging to the average person.

This article should be calling out Will for being the piece of $hit that he is, for trying to profit from this crisis instead of trying to help. Instead of being the saviour that he could be, he's become one of the capitalistic predators of people who are rapidly becoming desperate. Only a psychopath could have $70,000,000 and still be trying to get more. I guess that despicable behaviour is now considered the new normal and just par for the course in the USA.

Everything is justified as long as it's done in the name of god or profit, eh?

They'd get the pants sued off of them by Disney. Only Disney would be able to do something like that.

"This product, which is not for medical use or for use in a high infection risk clinical setting, is not a respiratory protective device, nor a substitute for filtering face piece respirators or for surgical face masks."

All you need to know.
Yeah, along with the $300 purchase price complete with that psychological trick of making it $299 so that the price doesn't start with a 3.

Not talking about this specific mask, but sad to see people think wearing a mask during crisis and need to protect is a conspiracy against freedom. Humans seem to defy logic more nowadays. Sheer stupidity.
It's true but it's also because people don't get creative in their arguments against these fools. When someone even hints at masks being against freedom, I just tell them that by that logic, we should all be allowed to run around nude in public with our junk hanging out. I would ask "Are you going to protest stores with signs that read 'No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service' next? That would TRUE freedom, eh?".

Now, I don't care one way or the other if people run around nude. However, these fools are, for some reason, always uneducated conservatives (that's all you really need to know, eh?). One guy was stopped dead in his tracks with his mouth agape because his pedestrian brain couldn't even process how to respond to that.

Then I remind them that a lot of baby boomers used to whine about how "uncomfortable" seat belts were and now it's masks that they're whining about despite the fact that they also save lives. The only real difference being that the masks are temporary, the seat belts aren't.

How do you think religions and governments have lasted and worked so well for so long?

Tell the stupid and gullible what you want them to hear and think, they'll follow without fail.
I know that they will. That's why the true measure of a person is whether or not they can resist the temptation to take advantage and damage society.

Unfortunately, so far, not so good.

Guaranteed it will become a fetish for some if it isn't already. LOL
I think "playing doctor", is already a common practice <(pun intended).

I have a litany of other lewd and repugnant comments I could make about wearing a mask during sex.......

For example, "don't hit me with those cat 'o nine tails unless they've been treated with an antibacterial agent".

Hm, better leave it at that... ;)

How so? If you think there are people out there having sex in masks, well you're sorely mistaken.
Well sure, instead of having to bring a paper bag to put over her head, she can just leave the mask on. It's convenient as hell, and it saves that awkward moment when you raise the bag and gently whisper in her ear, 'would you mind slipping into something more palatable"?

Just make sure it's a "U95" mask, which has been certified by the CHC (**) to prevent at least 95% of the ugly from leaking out.

Where there's pandemic there's profit
Where there's suffering there's silver
Where there's a Will-I-Am there's a way of cashing in on the misery

I was thinking more of "Mortal Kombat Ninja"-type with all of the fashion masks available.

Like:
"GET OVER HERE!!!"
"Oh Scorpion, your spear is so long... and so flexible!"
