YouTuber Allen Pan created a DIY mask gun that launches masks onto people’s faces.

After tests in Pan’s workshop proved the idea was at least somewhat feasible, he took the device to Huntington Beach, California. By the time Pan developed the gun, though, it seemed more beachgoers were wearing masks. Still, he had a few passersby test the mask launcher on a dummy, and it sort of worked.
While the mask gun is maybe a bit cathartic, shooting projectiles at someone’s face is never super safe. In an ideal world, good old public health measures and a little bit of compassion for fellow humans would get people to wear masks. Since this is not an ideal world, we’re left daydreaming about mask launchers and dropping personal protective equipment (PPE) out of drones.
