Razer has designed an air-purifying face mask aimed at, you guessed it, gamers. The thinking behind the Razer Zephyr Pro is that in-person gaming events will continue, and that team gamers in particular have a need to be heard by their teammates. "Breathe freely and be heard clearly," the company writes.
"Stay safe with its replaceable air filters for daily protection. Stay social with its transparent design, illumination, and voice-amplification for seamless communication. Stay sustainable with its reusable nature for long-term use."
The company points out that it is not an N95 mask, but features two-way air purification filters that offer "greater protection compared to standard disposable/cloth masks, and filters air both inhaled and exhaled to safeguard you and others around you." The company says their filters (for which they sell replacements) offer "95% Particulate Filtration Efficiency (PFE) and 99% Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE) for up to 72 hours in a normal environment." Additionally, the built-in fans have two speed settings to allow the user to tune the airflow.
This being Razer, the mask also features RGB lighting (tuneable via app). The face seal is silicone, transparent, and is treated with an anti-fog coating. "The interior lights allow your expressions to be seen even in dark settings."
The company has not yet announced a release date nor pricing.
