If you have to wear a mask (and you do), it can also be a super cool, high-tech mask with a translucent plastic front, voice amplification technology and RGB lighting effects.
Every year at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, gaming hardware maker Razer introduces conceptual projects that may or may not become real. This year, together with a transforming gaming chair with a retractable display, the company is showing Project Hazel, the “world’s smartest face mask”. It is an N95 mask with two rechargeable active ventilators that allow bi-directional filtering. The mask part is transparent so that people can see your smiling face. The silicone frame prevents the mask from pressing against your nose and mouth. And yes, the filters have RGB lighting that can serve both as a charge indicator and as a decoration.
As a reusable mask, Project Hazel would come with a wireless charging box with a UV light sterilization function. The idea is that people wear this all day and then drop it in the box for cleaning overnight.

Razer has done an amazing job of relieving the burden of Covid-19 over the past year, rebuilding production lines to supply more than a million disposable face masks to frontline healthcare workers. That said, Project Hazel is more like what I imagine when I hear the words “Razer Face Mask”.
Razer’s second CES concept is Project Brooklyn. It’s a transforming gaming chair. It has a bendable screen that lifts off the back of the headrest and a tray that folds out of the armrests.
It’s a pretty cool idea, although I don’t see it happening anytime soon.
If so, register for a retrofit of the electric wheelchair.
