Masks to prevent the spread of Corona 19 are evolving from protection to fashion. Game device manufacturer Razer went a step further and announced Project Hazel, a voice-amplified RGB mask.
In March 2020, Laser announced that it would help prevent the spread of corona by converting part of its manufacturing line to the development of surgical grade certified masks, and it has already announced that it has produced millions of masks. “As this concept evolved to a natural level, we wanted to try out a way to develop a new mask that was redesigned from scratch for the new normal,” said Mike Shanikou, chief marketing officer at Laser.
At this CES presentation, Razer presented a prototype of Project Hazel, which has not yet been fully produced. This mask, which Razer puts up as the “smartest mask in the world”, is characterized by taking into account the environmental issues caused by disposal of the mask as well as hygiene.
The recyclable Project Hazel Mask features a transparent face shield, a flexible silicone strap, and an N95’Smart Pod’ that provides filtering on both sides. The outlet is designed as an active ventilation system to control the inflow and outflow of air into the mask.
According to the laser, a transparent face shield can solve the problem of social interaction limitations caused by masks. You can see the user’s expression as well as the shape of the mouth, and there is a weak LED light inside, which is useful even at night.
Another problem with the mask is that it blocks the sound and interferes with communication. Project Hazel is equipped with a low-latency microphone and speaker that detects the user’s voice to accurately transmit the user’s voice to the outside. Voice algorithms can be trained through the accompanying app and deliver sounds like speaking without a mask.
The RGB LED mounted on the filter not only performs an aesthetic function, but also displays the state of the mask. It can indicate that charging is required, and the color of the LED can be set by the user. Project Hazel needs to be charged, while the laser has also made a charging case with UV disinfection functions.
As it is still in the prototype stage, details such as charging time and comfort when wearing are unknown. firstname.lastname@example.org
