Zephyr is designed to be “safe, social and sustainable,” and it also “sports 99% BFE, a secure silicon face seal and anti-fog coating.” For those interested in signing up, all you have to do is go to the Community Beta Test page and enter your name, country, e-mail, social media, and a brief explainer of why you’d like to be part of the test.
Razer first unveiled this RGB face mask concept at CES 2021 in January, and it confirmed that it was becoming a real product in March 2021. Razer Zephyr is still slated to release this year, but Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan warned that there would be limited quantities of the mask “from the getgo.”
Fortunately, Razer is planning on implementing a “sales by drops” strategy, meaning it will have a database of those interested in purchasing one and will let them know when units become available once again.
The Razer Zephyr is a “surgical N95 respirator” and has a high fluid resistance to protect against large droplets and splashes. It also features a clear and transparent design that will let others see you speak and pick up on facial cues easier. Its Voiceamp technology will also ensure your speech isn’t muffled via its built-in mic and amplifier combo.
It also supports replaceable filters, has rechargeable ventilators, comes with a wireless charging case with UV sterilizer, is meant for daily use, and can take advantage of 16.8 million colors and a suite of effects thanks to Razer Chroma RGB.
