Razer has confirmed that it will release its first Project Hazel smart masks in Q4 2021. Originally unveiled in January, Razer’s innovative smart mask features a transparent design, detachable and rechargeable active ventilators that provide N95 medical-grade respirator protection, and Smart Pods that “regulate airflow for optimal breathability.” It even incorporates interior lighting that automatically activates in the dark, as well as a built-in microphone to amplify the wearer’s voice. Razer’s Project Hazel smart masks will be available exclusively as part of a series of limited-quantity drops on razer.com.

Alongside that availability announcement, Tan also shared some changes coming to the mask since it was first shown in January. Razer is planning to keep the mask’s transparent design to make it easier to see the wearer’s mouth, but the company will also be adding interior lighting and anti-fog coating on the inside of the mask.

  1. Yay! Just in time for all the mask mandates to be lifted (ours was today Thank F^&K!%G GOD)

    I’m sure there’s a lot of people that will keep wearing them. More power to them. Nothing against them – bless their souls.

    I will not be one of them. Bring on all the germs.

  2. You know what… I’ll still get one and some filters. Because we all know this won’t be the last time.

  3. These things sound fancy, and with that comes high price tags. I’d just rather stick with these: [URL]https://www.amazon.com/3M-8511HB1-C-PS-Sanding-Fiberglass-Respirator/dp/B002VMCHPG/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=n95+mask&qid=1623821447&sr=8-6[/URL]

    With mass vaccinations, masks aren’t really needed anymore.
