Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan told Yahoo Finance this week that the Project Hazel mask will become a reality.
“We thought, this is a concept project and this will be relevant when vaccinations and everything is rolled out,” Tan told the publication. “I think in the future we decided – and I can tell you now – we will continue to make it a reality and send the smart mask.”
“We have realized that even with vaccinations, we hear that you still need to be masked because it is still the risk factor that even if you are vaccinated, you still need to be incredibly careful,” Tan said, adding that many countries may still have a year or two off from being fully vaccinated.
Tan did not say when the masks would come into production. Razer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
CES’s touring is transparent and has internal LED lights to make your mouth visible in low light. It uses replaceable filters and rechargeable fans on the two breathing pads. You can adjust the amount of airflow, and the pods have built-in sound processing algorithms to make your voice clearer and more natural.
The mask also has active ventilation and autosterilization; a separate case that can charge it wirelessly; and a UV sterilizer. And the bellows have illuminated rings that indicate charging status.
