To fight the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many are social distancing by staying home, turning to gaming instead to keep entertained. To make it easier to do both at the same time — and in true gamer style — Japanese company Spec-Computer is now launching its illumi-ON “mouth cover,” an RGB LED-enabled face mask perfect for the Twitch streamers out there.
Coming in both a black or white material, the masks have LEDs woven into the sides, which illuminate and diffuse across the front surface. The LEDs can cycle through seven colors — red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, purple, and white — or can be configured to display various lighting patterns, including a strobe effect. Users can control these settings via a small button installed on the side of the mask which also carries a micro-USB port for charging. While the product does come with a disposable PM 2.5 filter, it’s important to highlight that Spec-Computer says it’s not medical grade and is more of a “mouth cover,” so ideally you’ll want to wear it with extra layers underneath.
If you’re looking for a stylish mask to complement your gaming setup, the Spec-Computer illumi-ON mask will be launching August 21 for roughly $29 USD over on the company’s website as well as Amazon Japan and Yahoo Shopping.
For other gaming-related news, Microsoft will be launching Project xCloud next month for Android devices.
