Engineers Made a DIY Face Shield. Now It's Helping Doctors

A group of engineers in Madison, Wisconsin designed a face shield using materials and machines that were capable of producing mass quantities of the shields for hospitals. The design is now open-source and accessible to anyone on the web. They have since sent more than 1,000 face shields to the local hospital, and Ford has even picked up the design, pledging to produce more than 75,000 shields to be sent to hospitals in Detroit.
