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.
We know you’ve been waiting for the Project Hazel smart mask to become a reality – we’re working on it and there’ll be news soon!

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.
