They should call it the "Razer Maskham".
 
2021-01-13 10:47:44 AM  
I'd want one simply so I can go around and say "Don't make me destroy you"
 
2021-01-13 10:53:34 AM  
I mean, it's not the ugliest thing, and if I needed to be out in public a lot for the next year or so I would consider getting one since it looks comfortable and functional.  Hopefully after 2021 masks won't be needed for most people.

That's good. I'm looking for a better mask to use in my workshop. I'm in the process of carving an anvil out of a piece of train rail and I hate black snot.

I would have hoped that they would now become normal in western countries. If it became normal during allergy and flu season that really would be a great thing for health.

Unfortunately idiots have made it obvious that hoping that was too much concern for others.

Where do I pre-order one? The disposable ones always give me steamy windows on my glasses after a while, regardless of how well I fitted it underneath my eyes/nose. I also work in care, so being able to be heard 'un-muffled' , whilst being able to be lip-read, would actually really be something that I would blow my savings on right now!

Masks with vent ports don't protect the people around you...which is the primary reason you wear a non N95 mask.  (they do a better job stopping your exhalations than they do filtering your intake air).  Don't use ported masks for COVID reasons.

I plan on wearing one even after the pandemic is over (if it's ever really over) because of what you said about allergies. My seasonal allergies were no where near as bad this year as they've been in the past and I can only assume its because I've been wearing a mask everywhere I go. I might even pick one of these up if they start selling them. If they can have the lights change according to your mood, that would be awesome.

The only reason it is a thing for COVID is the period where you can be asymptomatic and actually have COVID. Everyone gets to wear a mask all the time. Flying on a plane now it should be mandatory. With the flu, symptoms hit pretty immediately. You should be quarantining yourself if you are sick anyways. The people who go out when they are sick aren't the type to mask up.

Particulate masks have been available (and a good idea when performing abrasive operations) for a lot longer than the current pandemic.

If this doesn't include a voice changer so you can sound like Darth Vader, Bane, Immortan Joe, or some other masked sci-fi villain it is a wasted opportunity.

Depending on the price I'd buy one.  Even though there has been no reported community transmission of COVID within 1,500 kms of me for over 9 months, they look fun enough to have for non-pandemic reasons too.

I have bad seasonal allergies and I noticed the difference last year. The second I realized it I swore I would always wear a mask. Felt kinda dumb that it took me a month to realize it.

Came here to post this image. If I could use this for work it'd be awesome. The environment is noisy and many of my patients are hard of hearing.

Not leaving satisfied, would buy this today.

I think those are where the air filters go, since the rest of the mask is solid, though clear, plastic.

But yeah, this actually seems like a decent idea, if they actually came out with it I'd consider it, depending on the price.

It's currently the equivalent of a concept car -- it's made to show off new technology, but will never actually make it to market.  (although some of the technology might, once they figure out any problems and how to mass produce it in a cost effective manner)

I've actually been wondering for months why no one comes up with an amplifer to deal with muffled voices.  (I had a doctor's appointment back in April or so where the doctor had an N95, surgical mask, and face shield ... so I had to get my face up near hers to hear what she was saying).

There were microphones for some of the early bluetooth earpieces that supposedly used the vibrations through your skill for pickup, rather than the air vibrations ... so I would think they wouldn't be muffled by the mask.

And based on the picture, I suspect they need a light inside the mask, so people can actually see your lips.

There was an article rather early into the pandemic about a hospital that had been using respirators with replaceable filters vs. disposable N95 masks and mentioned that they filtered better than the disposable masks.  I can't find that exact article, but I did find one that mentioned that the U. Maryland Medical Center was using them pre-pandemic : https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n​a​tion/2020/04/03/coronavirus-national-s​tockpile-disposable-n-95-face-masks-re​usable-respirator/5118669002/

This is why people who aren't sociopaths wear cloth masks over their vented N95.

Me too. I've not had a single cold this entire year. Usually have 3 or 4.

Not sure where the cut off point for me will be. Airport and mall, but not movies? Outside is fine, but grocery shopping masked? Subway?

I am expecting the mask will allow replaceable filters. if it is just a muzzle then pass.

Facebook spammed you with that video as well, did it?  I swear I've seen it in my feed at least a dozen times.  Cool project, mind you, but I really don't need to see it on every 10th post.

Article doesn't say it has a vent port, but is able to regulate air-flow.  So it sounds like it's a replaceable filter with a flow control, not an open check-valve.
