Razer is pushing the concept of the N95 mask to new heights. As part of the CES 2021 announcement, the company launched Project Hazel, the “smartest mask in the world” on Tuesday.
The Hazel project looks like a mask made by Razer. It looks like its appearance. It has a waterproof and scratch-resistant smooth plastic shell. The mask has a removable and rechargeable active ventilator, and a high bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) Smart Pod with adjustable airflow.
Razer said that due to its transparent design, the Hazel project allows others to view facial cues, thereby improving social interaction. Wearing a mask is almost impossible to understand nonverbal cues, because you can̵
The Hazel project also has VoiceAmp technology, which uses a built-in microphone and amplifier to enhance the user’s voice. I hope Razer’s technology can make everyone sound like Ben Affleck’s Batman, who has a metallic growl. If it sounds daunting, it means that people will keep their distance, and this is the point.
The smart mask also has active air cooling and adjustment functions, adjustable air-tight sealing of the ear ring and wireless fast charging box, which can sterilize the mask through disinfection ultraviolet rays. As you might expect, Project Hazel is equipped with RGB lighting, which is the main component of modern Razer products.
Tan Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, said: “Razer is aware of the uncertainties of the future, so we have a responsibility to help protect our community members and protect them from potential threats.” “Project Hazel The smart mask concept is designed to be practical, comfortable and useful for interacting with the world while maintaining a social aesthetic.”
Razer also released Project Brooklyn, which is a state-of-the-art gaming chair with carbon fiber design, RGB lighting and a 60-inch expandable display. The chair sits on an adjustable platform with cable routing and uses the design cues of the Razer Raptor display. It also has “4D” armrests that neatly fold and fold the table, so you can quickly switch from the mouse and keyboard to the controller.
Razer said it will continue to develop the Brooklyn program and test it with top e-sports athletes and celebrities. Will it become a real product? Maybe, maybe not. But, there is no denying that it looks pretty cool.
