Musician will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas fame has partnered with pioneering tech firm Honeywell to unveil a new face mask for all your tech needs. Aptly named the XUPERMASK, this US$299 face mask for tech geeks is decked out with all the works.
Featuring a silicone face seal and elastic strap, the mask is adjustable for the perfect fit, and is durable enough to be worn 365 days a year. It has also been fitted with non-medical grade HEPA filter for breathability.
Think it looks stuffy? Don’t worry, the gear comes with three dual-speed fans to help you keep your cool.
The special mask also comes with built-in noise-canceling headphone and microphone capabilities, plus Bluetooth connectivity, LED day glow lights, and a magnetic earbud docking system.

Said to have over seven hours of battery life, it’s also available in two sizes and colorways.
“We created XUPERMASK to change the game of our new normal,” said will.i.am. “In this new age of style and security, XUPERMASK is an uncompromising face mask design with high-tech performance for the modern lifestyle.”
If you think the pandemic isn’t going anywhere soon, it may just be time to get your hands on this one-of-a-kind face mask come April 8. Each XUPERKIT comes with a carrying case, a 3-month supply of HEPA filters, multi-size ear tips, a USB-C charging cable, and an additional fabric mask.
