Razer announced an N95 respirator at CES 2021 dubbed Project Hazel. The product was unveiled as a concept product but in a new twist, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan has disclosed in an interview with Yahoo Finance that “Project Hazel is going to be a reality”.
With the uncertainty surrounding the rollout of COVID 19 vaccines globally and the continued rise in the number of cases and mortality rates, the use of nose masks won’t stop any time soon and that is apparently why Project Hazel is being transformed from concept to reality.
The mask utilizes detachable and rechargeable ventilators that also serve as voice amplifiers as there are microphones embedded inside. The outside is made from waterproof and scratch-resistant recycled plastic with a glossy finish.
In Razer’s trademark manner, the nose mask is designed with RGB Chroma lighting which allows the two ventilators to glow, and even automatically shine light onto your mouth when it gets dark, so others can see you speaking. It equally comes with adjustable ear loops.
There is no word yet on when Razer will release the respirator or the price tag it will adopt. We expect the company to fast track the process as the product will still need to get approved and certified by the US Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or Occupational Safety and Health Administration as well as any relevant authority in the regions where the company plans to sell it.
