While vaccines for the coronavirus are being rolled out across the world and suggests that life could return to normal soon enough, if there is one thing the pandemic has taught us is to be more vigilant about our hygiene and also the possibility of airborne viruses. For some, this could mean wearing masks even when the pandemic eventually passes.
Razer is aware of this and they have announced that its Project Hazel mask will be officially launching in the fourth quarter of 2021. Now, before you get too excited, Project Hazel will be released in “drops” and in limited quantities and will be exclusive to its website. Presumably the idea is to use the drops to gauge interest in it before the company starts making more units.
For those unfamiliar, Project Hazel was actually announced earlier this year at CES. It is a futuristic mask that comes with features like built-in fans and RGB lighting, along with the usual filters that help keep out airborne particles and fluids. It was initially viewed as a concept of what a future could look like where masks could become more sophisticated, but Razer later said that they do have plans to make it a reality.
The company still hasn’t mentioned how much its Project Hazel mask could cost, but if you are interested, you can sign up to be notified when it is eventually released.
