Will.i.am has announced his latest tech invention the Xupermask, a pandemic proof LED lit mask with noise cancelling headphones.
The Black Eyed Peas rapper and entrepreneur has recently partnered up with tech company Honeywell to create a futuristic mask. The mask was designed by Jose Fernandez, who was the mind behind Elon Musk’s SpaceX suits. The mask features dual 3-speed fans, HEPA filters, a microphone, and a magnetic earbud docking system. It features a seven-hour battery life and can also play music and take calls.
Speaking about the mask to the New York Times Will.i.am said: “The pandemic is straight out of a friggin movie. But we are wearing masks from yesterday’s movie. So I wanted to make a mask to fit the era we’re in.”
The Xupermask is another tech project that for many will be unaffordable and even pointless, however, you can’t knock the infinity behind the mask. If the pandemic goes on much longer, a mask like this will be essential. Also, who doesn’t want to look like they’re a character out of the Cyberpunk game!
