Technology company Razer has developed a conceptual design for a clear plastic face mask with lights and a built-in sound system to improve social interaction during the pandemic.
Called Project Hazel, the mask would be transparent in order to allow the wearer to use gestures such as smiling while speaking.
The clear material used around the mouth of the Project Hazel mask would also allow people who are hard of hearing to lip read during a conversation.
Built-in lights would turn on automatically in low light conditions, to keep this function working in the dark, and the lights could also be customized to display different colors and effects for fun.
