Razer shows off the ‘smart’ concept mask with the so-called sterilization charging case
Razer says that he has built a “smart” capable of ensuring the “highest degree of safety.”
Dubbed Project Hazel, the mask, according to Razer, features an N-95 medical-grade respirator and a detachable and rechargeable disk-type ventilator that can supposedly control airflow while still removing “at least 95 percent of airborne particles.”
The prototype comes bundled in a wireless charging case that Razer said is lined with a UV light inside that it says will automatically clean the bacterial and virus mask when charging.
To resolve the muffled voices frequently encountered by mask wearers, Razer has introduced its patent-pending VoiceAmp system, which uses an integrated microphone and amplifier to amplify the user’s speech direct conversation when wearing a mask.
Also, the mask has a simple nature to allow users to experience “more seamless social interaction” with others, since they would see the user talking.
Razer noted that the mask is made of waterproof, scratch-resistant material, is lined with silicon, and has flexible earloops to ensure a safe fit.
At the same time, the interior lights were fitted to the mask that would automatically activate in the dark, which Razer said would enable the wearers to “express themselves clearly regardless of lighting conditions” Users would have the option of 16,8 million colors to select from to change the hue of the lights.
Razer said that it would continue to build and enhance Project Hazel by more research and user input.
“Razer acknowledges the uncertainty in the road ahead, and so it was our duty to help protect our community members and prepare them from invisible threats,” Razer CEO and co-founder Min-Liang Tan said.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Razer donated 1 million surgical masks to frontline health workers.
At the time, Tan said that everybody had a role to play in the battle against the virus and that it doesn’t matter which sector is normally the center of business.
