In addition, the mask includes a detachable ventilator to regulate airflow and filter out 95 percent of airborne particles, and comes with a special UV-lit charging case that is said to kill bacteria. The design is transparent and includes a built-in mic and amplifier to allow for easier communication, while the mask’s interior automatically lights up when it’s dark for easier visual. It purports to be waterproof, scratch-resistant and made of recyclable plastic, and has customizable light settings to add “a little flair” to your look.
Interested users can sign up for the community beta test through the company’s website.
