Razer’s N95 RGB Mask, The Smartest Mask In The World
Are you ready for a sneak peak of the “world’s smartest mask” from Razer’s Project Hazel? It’s a N95 respirator with a glossy outer shell made of waterproof and scratch-resistant recycled plastic which allows lip-reading from its transparent shell. The Razer mask has 2 circular zones that flank your mouth which are used for ventilation. These active disc-type ventilators help filter the air that is breathed in as well as the CO2 that is being exhaled out. Razer claims that it will be certified to filter 95% of airborne particles, including the coronavirus and other common pathogens.
It was added that microphones and amplifiers are embedded in the ventilators to ensure your voice is able to project through the mask, which is a common problem in normal surgical masks right now. The company said that they are working with THX sound engineers to find a balance in terms for the volume of the speakers for accessibility purposes. Furthermore, Razer envisions that the masks will include a large charging case that will sterilize the mask with UV light when it’s not being used.
Unfortunately, Project Hazel has yet to get any of the necessary approvals and certifications from the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or Occupational Safety and Health Administration. On top of that, there isn’t a solid release date and price range announced yet.
