Never one to disappoint on crazy designs, Razer has revealed a seriously smart face mask at CES 2021. And with everything that’s going on in the world, it might even be more appealing than its concept convertible gaming chair, ‘Project Brooklyn’.

While the aesthetics won’t be a hit for everyone, before you make any rash judgments on this RGB-injected medical wear, you should know that every part of the design has an important part to play – even the funky lighting.

The mask is a surgical N95-grade face-covering made from recycled materials, which falls in line with Razer’s sustainability ethos (check out the collaboration between Razer and Conservation International for more info). To reduce waste created by disposable masks, Razer’s mask uses replaceable and rechargeable disc-type ventilators. The carry case for the mask also acts as a charging box and has a disinfecting UV light that promises to kill off any bacteria.

The RGB lighting on the mask will indicate low power levels or let you know when your filter need replacing, though you can turn off the lighting if you prefer. The mask is also waterproof, scratchproof, and face-fitting thanks to a silicone liner that forms a seal to prevent rogue airflow. The tight hugging fit will be a blessing to any glasses wearers out there, who may have been viewing the world through a fog for many months now, as it should prevent hot air from escaping upwards.

The clear face-panel design was purposely included for better socialization and to help those who require lip reading for assisted communication. You don’t have to raise your eyebrows to the old lady in the supermarket anymore to let her know you’re smiling (even if she might be put off by the futuristic-looking mask itself).

The mask also includes interior lights to softly illuminate your face during low lighting, so you can still wear the mask effectively outside of daylight hours. Razer is also currently patenting its ‘Razer Voiceamp Technology’, which prevents the tight seal of the mask from muffling your voice by using a built-in mic and amplifier to give your speech crystal clear clarity.

Razer announced their new Project Brooklyn concept gaming chair at CES 2021 and if ever there was a product meant for an in-person event, it’s a spectacularly unnecessary gaming cockpit.

“Project Brooklyn is an exciting concept developed on the true essence of a fully immersive gaming station,” said Min-Liang Tan, CEO of Razer, in a statement. “The haptic feedback, visuals and overall functional design with attention to ergonomics will deliver a one-of-a-kind gameplay experience.”

Considering that Razer is a prestige brand in the PC gaming scene, you’d think we’d have seen more of this kind of thing from Razer in years past but it only released its first gaming chair – the Razer Iskur – a few months ago. If this is its second, we’d be perfectly okay with that.

Building off of the design for the Iskur, Project Brooklyn pretty much throws everything at the drawing board, including carbon fiber construction, RGB lighting (obviously), audio-driven haptic feedback, and 4D armrests that roll out into a desktop surface for peripherals.
