Xupermask, a futuristic high tech mask designed by American Company will.i.am, is launched on April 8, 2021 to provide users protection against covid-19. It is not only an intelligent mask because it also allows the wearer to make calls and listen to music concurrently, reports ETX Studio.
This mask will at the very least bestow you with a touch of class. Straight out of a science fiction movie, the ultra-connected accessory was designed by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas and Honeywell. The company believes that even after the pandemic, there will be a future for masks.
What’s the Concept Behind?
According to the report, Xupermask is composed of HEPA filters that ensure that the air inhaled is as clean as possible. It also comes with Bluetooth headphones and LED lights that glow in the dark. This superhero-like design is the work of Jose Fernandez, a costume designer who designed the SpaceX suits and came up with the costumes and masks for movies like Spiderman, Tron and Black Panther.
The model will come with filter refills for three months of filter, after which more will have to be purchased. Will.i.am (the namesake founder of the company) is betting big on this design because he believes that the mask can become a fashion accessory. Like a hat or glasses, a high-tech mask could become a must-have in a stylish wardrobe.
As he told an American media, ‘I think people will continue to wear masks and [if] masks like the Xupermask have other functionality, I think you’re going to [be] giving people an option.’
Pandemic-related health measures are likely to be required for some time, so why not choose a futuristic, fashion-forward model when it comes to a face mask?
What About The Price?
Xupermask is a luxury item indeed as it carries the price tag of US$299! For that high price, wearers will be able to breathe cleaner air amidst the ongoing pandemic.
