A futuristic mask created by the costume designer of Daft Punk and superheroes


Sold for nearly $ 300 from April 8, this connected mask wants to reconcile design, technology and above all protection against the coronavirus. Promoted by the artist Will.i.am, the Xupermask integrates fans, filters, but also in-ear headphones for the wireless use of a smartphone.
