Razer recently revealed a new smart mask designed to keep you safe from viruses like coronavirus, and synthesize your voice, too.

  • The mask — called the Razer Smart Mask — offers “comfort with an unobtrusive air-tight and padded seal to ensure proper protection against harmful airborne particles,” the company said.
  • The mask comes with a UV lightbox charger that sanitizes the mask every day, too.

The company said in a release that the mask “intends to help improve the convenience of daily wear while overcoming common social interaction challenges.”

  • The mask includes a new Razer VoiceAmp Technology (patent pending) that uses a microphone and amplifier to change the user’s speech, amplifying it so you can hear over the muffled sounds of a mask.

  • “Razer acknowledges the uncertainty in the road ahead, and so it was our duty to help protect our community members and prepare them from invisible threats,” said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer. “The Project Hazel smart mask concept is intended to be functional, yet comfortable and useful for interacting with the world, while maintaining a sociable aesthetic.”
