Gaming Masks Help Fight Covid And Exist In Japan – By: Brian Ashcraft – https://kotaku.com/gaming-masks-fight-covid-and-exist-in-japan-1844602589
Gaming products love LED. If a company wants to make a gaming PC, a gaming keyboard, or a gaming mouse, light-emitting diodes are a constant. So these “gaming masks” should be no surprise.
According to Famitsu, these Illumi-on branded gaming mask covers are outfitted with LED lights charged by USB. They come in black and white material and can cycle through a handful of colors, including red, green, blue, yellow, light blue, purple, and white.
While not medical grade, and officially called a “mouth cover”, it does come with a disposable PM 2.5 filter. But, as Siliconera points out, the mask cannot be washed and should probably be used to cover a proper mask underneath.
Priced at 2,970 yen ($29), the Illumi-on Twinkling Mouth Cover will be released in Japan this month.
