CNET reports the new smart face mask, which can talk to your phone and amplify your voice. The recent coronavirus doesn’t seem to end in the near future. The whole world continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic.
The Japanese startup Donut Robotics has totally transformed the face mask into the latest tech gadget. The new white plastic smart mask “C-mask” is an internet-connected face mask that lets you make calls and dictate messages.
One of the most notable features is the ability to translate messages into different languages. However, in order to enable that feature, you need a subscription.
Talking to Reuters, Donut Robotics chief executive Taisuke Ono said, ” We worked hard for years to develop a robot and we have used that technology to create a product that responds to how the coronavirus has reshaped society”.
You need to put c-mask over the standard face mask. It connects to your mobile phone and tablet via Bluetooth. The engineers of the Donut Robotics were trying hard to make a product that can help the company survive the coronavirus pandemic. The company signed a contract at the start of the pandemic with Tokyo’s Haneda Airport to supply Cinnamon robot guides and translators. However, the future of the product is uncertain due to current lockdown and air travel restrictions around the world.
Initially, the product is available in Japan only. Customers in other parts of the world can get this product later. Ono told Reuters that he’d like to sell products in other countries. The c-mask will help people stay safe and talk to people conveniently while wearing a mask.
