DAY 7: UNDER THE MASK!

While the country is coping with a dreadful lack of surgical masks, the solution could com straight out of a Décathlon’s aisle ! Indeed, its very large snorkeling mask – yeah, we talk about underwater excursions at Carlin ! – that we’ve seen a lot on beaches these last summers, is quite effective at protecting against unintended spits. It could improve respirators’ performance just with an additionnal valve. But we still have to be careful as experiments are being carried out. Suppliers have also slowed the enthusiasm down as the mask’s effectiveness hasn’t been certified yet.

CARLIN’S POINT OF VIEW: It is still stricking to see how we are able to improve ourselves when facing a crisis. Carlin is going to dig that instinctive creative trend furthuer soon with our upcomming “Happening” theme.
DAY 8: (FOR) Ever clean hands
Seven seconds to sanitize your hands ! That’s an encouraging record in these hard epidemic time. And it’s all thanks to the french startup EverCleanHands with its terminal using hydro vegetal gel. Working as a big hand-dryer, it doesn’t need any physical interaction. If it had been designed for companies’ restaurants at first, it might arrive in public spaces quicker than we though. Bacteries tend to developp really fast there, as we all know now.

CARLIN POINT OF VIEW: Founded way before the epidemic, this startup bet on the right horse with these potentially reccuring public problems.
DAY 9: IN THE BASKET!
Everyone is currently looking for a way to support to collective effort : kind words, clapping at 8 p.m, generous help to elder. But three rival crowdfunding platforms have decided to ally to create “Les Paniers solidaires”. KissKissBankBank, Ulule and MicroDon gathered to offer baskets full a staple goods to needy people : caregivers, isolated and old persons or homeless. Representing a 30-euro-help, each basket provides enough food for 3 days in quarantine, for 2 persons.

CARLIN’S POINT OF VIEW: People take some many actions and everyone gets more generous and supportive. But will we be able to keep on going after the quarantine ?

A struggle that the belgian company Materialise, specialized in 3D printing doesn’t care for. With its simple plastic tab that you just have to clip, you can now open your door hand free !
