The suit was created by Cao Junjie.
via: YoutubeAnd inspired by the popular video game Death Stranding. That makes more sense. The action game set here in the US features creatures from a realm between life and death roam on earth... Dark.
Looking at the suit, you can tell it was made by a gamer.
via: YoutubeIt features a small pod with a see-through screen fitted with a dial on the side measuring the air quality. Wouldn't mind one of these myself.
The video surfaced on March 20th.
via: YoutubeShowing Junijie demonstrating his creation by bundling his baby up inside the suit and putting on the harness.
His kid looks quite content laying in the pod.
via: YoutubeBut wait... it gets even better. Junijie pops on his own mask and heads outside with the infant, who seemingly spends most of the time sleeping.
But don't worry, he can still comfort the baby.
via: YoutubeAt one point, we can see Junijie place his hand into the pod with his interconnected glove through a special hole in the suit. It's all very complicated.
Junijie explains why he chose this particular design...
via: Youtube"Because I like scientific movies and games, the structure of the safety cabin is similar to the game Death Stranding, I checked the character in the game."
He created the pod so his baby would be safe outside.
via: YoutubeHe claimed the special suit allows him and his family to go outside without the fear of catching the virus.
