Having spent an entire year living with the pandemic and grown accustomed to the safety precautions and routine, people want more than to just wear a mask for safety. Fashion designers and artists have been customizing masks for some time now, catering to those who wish to incorporate safety into their style, but not all of them meet the required safety standards.
Razor has come forth with its own conceptual model of what “the world’s smartest mask” would look and act like but with their own techy twist, in addition to adhering to safety regulations that allow the mask to do its job. Their attempt at a smart mask culminated in one of the most cyber-punk-looking face masks ever to hit the shelves.
The team at Inside Telecom has not tested these masks, as they are still in the creative concept stages, and not an actual product to be tested, and so this information comes straight from Razor.
What’s so smart about it?
Classified as an N95, the mask is fitted with, protects against the tiny droplets that carry the covid-19 water droplets through the air, and also prevents ones breath from escaping as it is equipped with two filters on either side, but that’s just the standard.
No more funny faces under the mask, as the mask has a transparent front that allows for lip reading and facial expression, two important aspects of effective communication between people. It is also equipped with small LED lights within the mask and around the mouth.
As far as communication, the smart mask also comes with a voice amplifier that helps get around the muffling effects, another annoying thing about regular masks.
Does this mean that something has to power it? Well, this obviously reusable mask comes with a sleek looking box container lined with disinfecting UV lights.
In simple words, the mask can be recharged and used for 24 hours nonstop and can also be disinfected at the same time.
Perhaps we will see more mask concepts emerge as the pandemic goes into the second year, or perhaps customized and fashionable face masks become the newest thing elder parents don’t understand about their children.
