As always, Naomi Wu has thought things through and researched properly. Well done!
This is a DIY PAPR (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powered_air-purifying_respirator) HEPA filtered air is blown in under pressure, exhalation passes through a check valve and is directed out the P100 3M filter. Potentially for high-risk environments- testing it without a CO2 sensor is also a good way to kill yourself.
If you need to video conferencing for your team/staff, please read https://nzoss.nz/node/2120
Grateful that our country has sane and compassionate leadership at this moment #NZ
