N95 masks, gamer style: Razer’s crazy face-mask prototype revealed


Recommended Posts

The annual deluge of CES gadgets and gizmos usually tries to predict what consumer-grade tech will look like in living rooms of the near future. But after a year like 2020, bendable TVs and surround-sound systems seem less interesting than a more pressing category: tech to help people go outside during an ongoing pandemic.

That's why we're taken by the Razer Project Hazel, arguably the most high-end face-mask concept we've seen since COVID-19 began ravaging the globe. This N95 mask concept was revealed as part of Razer's CES line of gamer-centric products on Tuesday, and it showed up as a surprise entry alongside the company's usual fare of laptops and gaming peripherals.

16.8 million colors on your face? Sure, why not

Razer's sales pitch alleges that this shouldn't be surprising at all, since the company repurposed at least one of its production lines to pump out over a million disposable, surgical-grade face masks in 2020.

Project Hazel immediately reinforces the company's affinity for customizable lighting grids, thanks to two rings of light—which support 16.8 million colors, because, why not—circling the mask's ventilation slots. We wouldn't be shocked if Razer eventually let gamers sync these light grids with nearby mice and keyboards.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
