After unveiling their concept at CES, Razer has announced that their Project Hazel smart face mask will soon be a real product.
In an interview with Yahoo Finance UK, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan said, “We were thinking, this is a concept project and is this going to be relevant when vaccinations and everything has been rolled out. I think moving forward we decided — and I can tell you now — we are going to proceed in making it a reality and ship the smart mask.”
Project Hazel has been dubbed by Razer as “the World’s Smartest Face Mask.” It uses an N95 medical-grade respirator with rechargeable active ventilators and Smart Pods.
“Project Hazel is going to be a reality. We are going to make it happen and I think we will all be, unfortunately, wearing masks for a long time to come,” said Tan.
The concept design of the mask has a clear window that lets those around you read your lips. There are also mics with Razer’s VoiceAmp Technology that amplify your voice.
The charging box that the mask is stored in has a UV-light interior and wireless fast charging. Just like Razer’s other products, the mast also has its Chroma RGB lighting.
Razer hasn’t announced when the smart face mask will go into production or how much it’ll cost.
