Earlier this year, Razer revealed its plans for ‘Project Hazel’ at CES 2021, aiming to revolutionize the face mask, which looks like it’ll still be around for at least the near future. Now, it has been officially announced that the mask is accepting signups for its community beta testing phase.
Now renamed the ‘Razer Zephyr’, the mask retains most of its previously reported features: air filtration, a mic and amplifier, signature Chroma customizable RGB lights to match your PC setup, and is rechargeable inside its own sterilizing case.

Claimed to be much sturdier and durable than a typical N95, the Zephyr is made of recycled plastic, which make it waterproof and scratch-resistant. Plus, it allows for replaceable filters and rechargeable ventilators. Its transparent design allows for clearer communication rather than the muffled, unclear voices that seem constantly trapped behind a regular mask.
And, perhaps the thing to set it apart from every single other mask out there: it lights up in the dark with customizable RGB lights. What’s not to love?
The mask is a design that’s “the most intelligent mask ever created,” and touted by Razer to “ensure the highest degree of safety with the best quality of life enhancements.”
Users interested in the mask and beta testing can find more information and sign up on the Zephyr microsite.
Masks are here to stay, and it is important that they provide the highest degree of safety. Lab-tested for 99% BFE, the Project Hazel wearable air purifier features N95 Grade filters for reliable particulate filtration while maintaining breathing ease: https://t.co/NC6ZwFCt68 pic.twitter.com/FOJZaVoXOE— R Λ Z Ξ R (@Razer) August 4, 2021
