You can sign up to test Razer’s futuristic RGB N95 mask

Razer has announced that its N95 that looks something straight out of a sci-fi movie has a beta program in place. The mask is planned to hit the market shelves in the fourth quarter this year. The cool-looking Project Hazel has been named the Razer Zephyr and users can sign up to be beta tester on the company’s website.

Different from initial renders

The company hasn’t divulged any additional information about the release date of the mask or when beta testers can expect to get their hands on one. Going by the video shared by the company alongside the announcement, beta testers might receive a different mask design from what’s been shown until now.

The Zephyr looks a bit wider and rounder than Razer’s original Project Hazel, and there’s a grille at the bottom of the mask that’s a lot more visible than previously shared images. It could be for additional ventilation or to amplify voice, but it definitely wasn’t shown during the company’s earlier concepts for the futuristic mask.

More details are awaited

More information will come to light once beta testers get their hands on the mask, but the announcement of the program is a testament to its existence. The project was shown off during CES as a concept and now the company is actually contemplating making it into reality. Whether this unique-looking mask is affordable and practical is a debate for another day.

Famous musician William Adams aka “,” also previously launched a high-tech mask. It is a smart face mask that has the bells and whistles of a modern-age gadget. The “Xupermask” is built in collaboration with N95 mask maker Honeywell. It sells at $299 and is made of silicon and athletic mesh to provide a snug fit. Besides, the mask also packs LEDs, 2 fans, a non-medical HEPA filtration system, and lastly noise-canceling headphones. It’s basically a low-end smartphone that can be used as a mask.
