Japanese Artist’s ‘Ramen Face Mask’ is Perfect for Everyone With Glasses

If you wear glasses, fogging them up while wearing a face mask is inevitable and can be pretty annoying. 

Fortunately, you can now pair your fogged up look with this eye-catching Ramen Face Mask.

Created by Japanese artist Takahiro Shibata, the mask’s ingenious design features a bowl of noodles resting on the wearer’s face. As your glasses get foggier, the hotter the noodles appear to be.

“I made a mask for people with glasses,“ noted his caption, as translated by Google from Japanese. ”The more cloudy your glasses are, the hotter you can see the Ramen. Ease of use, no better than this.”

Shibata, who specializes in creating bizarre and one-of-a-kind inventions, has generated a respectable following on Twitter where he often showcases his creations. 

While Shibata owns a shop where his creations are usually put on sale, his Ramen Face Mask is currently not sold in his shop yet. 

Many people were impressed by Takahiro’s tweet about the Ramen Face Mask:
