Its interesting to watch how the pandemic has impacted fashion and wearable tech. Via Coemplex:
Most masks don’t have three dual speed fans, a filtration system, LED day glow lights, or noise-canceling audio and microphone capabilities. That’s because most masks aren’t the brainchild of Will.i.am.
Announced today, the multi-hyphenate is linking with manufacturing company Honeywell for a one-of-a-kind piece of technology, XUPERMASK, a $299 product aimed to revolutionize the mask game. XUPERMASK uses Honeywell’s patented HEPA filtration tech with specs straight from the mind of the Black Eyed Peas MC and producer, such as magnetic earbud docking, Bluetooth 5.0, as well as noise-canceling and noise-reduced microphone.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
