Honeywell will launch a smart mouth mask on Thursday. The cap has, among other things, three fans and built-in headphones, reports The New York Times.
The mask is made of silicone, has three built-in fans, noise-canceling headphones, LED lights, a rechargeable battery and a 5.0 bluetooth connection. In addition, the mask can be worn without fogging up your glasses.
The mouth mask was developed in collaboration with the American rapper will.i.am. During the MTV VMAs in 2020, he wore a trendy variant of a gas mask, which eventually served as the prototype for the hood.
Marc Benioff, the CEO of the American tech company Salesforce, saw the performance of will.i.am and immediately contacted the artist to further develop the mask. The smart mouth mask has been in production for a year.
“We developed Xupermask to change the ‘new normal’,” says will.i.am. “Wearing a face mask has become so common that we wanted to take it to a higher level. So with all the technical gadgets we need nowadays. This smart mask is not only technically advanced, but also looks fashionable.”
The mask was designed by Jose Fernandez, who created costumes for the films, among other things Black Panther, The Avengers on X-Men 2. The smart mask costs $ 299 (about $ 250).
