At CES 2021, Razer unveiled Project Hazel, “the world’s smartest face mask.” It is waterproof and scratch resistant, while the mask is equipped with replaceable modules with a high filtration efficiency of bacteria.
According to Razer, thanks to its transparent design, Project Hazel allows others to see your facial expressions, which improves social interaction. Ordinary masks hide when someone smiles or says something. Project Hazel’s design addresses this problem. If you wear a Razer mask in the dark, the backlight automatically turns on. As you’d expect, the Project Hazel features RGB lighting, which is a staple of current Razer products.
Project Hazel also uses VoiceAmp technology, which uses a built-in microphone and amplifier to enhance the user’s voice. The smart mask also features active air cooling, a sealed adjustable earloop seal, and a fast wireless charging device that can disinfect the mask with UV light.
Razer is aware of the uncertainties on the way forward, and therefore it is our responsibility to help protect our community members from invisible threats. ”The Project Hazel smart mask concept is designed to be functional, comfortable and useful for interacting with the world, while maintaining an aesthetic appearance.
