Israeli company Avtipus Patents and Inventions unveiled a design for a mask that can be worn while eating, Eli Berlzon at Reuters reported.

The mask is controlled by a handheld lever, which opens or closes the mouth opening, but it could also open automatically when a fork comes near it, according to company VP Asaf Gitelis.

The company told Reuters that it plans to begin manufacturing the masks within a few months, priced between $0.85 and $2.85 above standard medical masks.
