"For better or worse, this pandemic will likely make us pick up the pace on our path to automation, across many sectors and processes. The solutions people implement during this crisis won’t disappear when things go back to normal (and, depending who you talk to, they may never really do so)."

We're going to end up with a public surveillance network similar to China's.

Amazing.  First the respirator valves in Italy and now this.  I never really thought of 3D printing for medical devices but seeing this heck yeah every hospital could use one.  And the medical corps of the military branches.

Outside of medical, I think this will jump start demand for 3D printing machines all over once the dust settles post CV.

Now somebody ought to design a 3D printed half face mask that uses something common, like a cut down panty shield as a replaceable filter.*

*Dunno if you can breath through a panty shield or how effective it is against CV.

>panty shield

Somewhere around here, I think I posted an old CDC guide on making a DIY mask. It used heavy t-shirt material that had been boiled to pre-shrink it.  Efficiency was 67%, IIRC.

(I wish I had a 3d printer.)

I am sure there will be a spike in divorces and babies as this continues.  Maybe we'll call the spike the Coronaboom?

Sculley predicts that the fundamental shift in consumer behavior as a result of the coronavirus pandemic is going to present a far more challenging problem to the airline and hotel industries than any temporary economic downturn.
