If you've ever watched any of those documentaries like "Traffic Cops - Resurrection" or "Park Wardens - Shoot to Kill", you'll know that all passers by, and often the offenders themselves, have pixellated faces.

Now, thank's to Max'sMaxMixedMasks (inc), you too can preserve your privacy whilst also appearing to be in the background of an interesting police-v-motorist compilation documentary.

Weighing a mere 1.5kg*, the Max'sMaxMixedMasks (inc) PixelMask has a small video camera on the back of the headband, and a simple light sensor on the front, allowing the onboard processor to calculate the correct pixel values for your face (even those tricky "edge pixels") under any conditions of lighting. This pixel pattern is then displayed on a group of 30 rectangular OLEDs which form the flat face of the mask.

Already own a Max'sMaxMixedMasks (inc) PixelMask? Then why not accessorize with a pair of PixelPanties for that ever-so-censored Japanese pornstar look?

*excludes hardware.

       seems a bit complicted.   

       My solution: a cylinder which fits over the person's head. The cylinder is made of an array of fresnel lenses. The cylinder would have a slit to see out through.

       //What's a "Wair"?// You'd have to ask our marketing department about that. I'm just the ideas man.
