This mask is quite literally lit.
On Wednesday, Razer debuted the Pro version of its Zephyr mask. The Razer Zephyr is a transparent mask with fans and two-way air filters that’s also equipped with customizable party-ready lighting. The Pro version adds voice amplification to the mask so everyone will be able to hear you when you say how much you love this song.
The Zephyr is based on a concept Razer showcased at CES 2021, when Covid-tech was all the rage. The actual version has straps that go around the head, not the ears as was envisioned for the concept. What with the lighting and the batteries and the fans, there was probably a bit too much hardware for ear straps.
These straps do the heavy lifting.
The lighting on the outside of the mask changes colors, which you can control with an app. There are also interior lights to illuminate your face, so everyone can actually see through the transparent mask, which Razer says has an “anti-fog coating.”
Actually making the mask useful for preventing the spread of Covid requires changing out N95 filters, which Razer sells on its site.
The Zephyr is already available to buy for $99. The Zephyr Pro’s release date will be sometime in 2022, and Razer has not shared pricing information yet.
