RESILIENCE IS THE MAIN SELLING POINT OF THIS FILIPINO-MADE SCREEN FOR YOUR NEXT ZOOM MEETING
Filipino scientist, Mahar Lagmay, designed a sustainable product for people who need to hide not-so-flattering and really messy backgrounds for a virtual background-ready online meeting.
We’re in an era when attending classes and attending meetings for work are done virtually. All of which involves keeping in touch via video chat. Suddenly, you’re at a position where you look around and reassess what’s going on in your room only to realize that piles of clothes, clutter, and unorganized equipment isn’t a good look. You can take it out or move around however you want but it just disrupts the whole cave you’re in. And this is already the “new normal” we are inevitably thrust in.
As we try to make do with resources available in light of our present situation, now, on the last quarter of the year, we have seen more and more goods and service surface, specially made as a by-product of life in the pandemic–pushing people to adjust to the new normal. From wearing masks, face shield, gloves, everyday PPEs for some, among others.
Filipino scientist, Mahar Lagmay, designed a sustainable product made accessible for people who need to hide not-so-flattering to very messy backgrounds and equip them to be virtual background-ready through a simple but practical product called the Resilience Screen.
The Resilience Screen is essentially a green screen with a stand made of bamboo designed to be clamped to a chair to sit behind from, creating a chroma key that allows anyone to change backgrounds, especially when using video conferencing apps like Zoom, Google Meets, and the like.
“There is no metal. There are no screws. It makes use of bamboo’s properties,” the inventor highlighted in an interview.
You can use it for whatever purpose, even if you just need a plain background to rid of distracting clutter in your home work stations. The whole set costs P1,000, with the green screen at 1.5 x 1.5 meters in size. It also includes the all bamboo stand. The initiative stems from the mission to help create jobs and feed families deeply impacted by the pandemic.
