COVID-19: Apple and Other Tech Giants Produce Face Shields For Medical Frontliners

It’s always nice to see when people or big corporations go out of their ways to help others in times of need. From providing welfare support to medical front liners, to creating face masks and face shields to aid the shortages, it’s heartening to see that humanity prevails despite the situation mother nature throws at us.

Alongside other tech giants like SpaceX and Tesla, Apple recently published instructions and a fitting guide on how to assemble their face shields. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook stated that he would like to ship out a total of two million face shields, with some medical workers in California, United States, having already received them.

Another company that’s turning existing products into face shields is the D’Addario company, the parent company to Evans Drumheads. Originally a company that makes drumheads (the flat side of a drum), D’Addario and their engineers have managed to design a headband to fashion their drumheads into face shields when combined together.

D’Addario intends to start production for these face shields on 27th April 2020 and has the goal of manufacturing up to 100,000 face shields a week. The music accessory company is committed to making their face shields available world-wide as well—those interested in purchasing the Dynatomy face shield can do so here.

When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. The best of humanity and innovation truly does strike at the worst of times.
