LG adds microphone and speaker to air purifying mask and will be released next month

LG has announced an updated version of its high-tech air purifying face mask. LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier.. The company hasn’t announced pricing or adoption, but PuriCare will launch in Thailand next month, stating that “other markets will follow after approval by local regulators.” There is reason to believe that there is a demand for such products between the ongoing pandemic and widespread air pollution.

LG first announced the mask last year, Filter the air using a replaceable air filter and built-in fan. According to LG, the new version incorporates a small, lightweight motor, as well as a microphone and speaker that amplifies the wearer’s voice. (The original mask video shows that Muffled speech The latter technology, which LG calls Voice ON, “automatically recognizes what the user is talking about and amplifies the voice through the built-in speaker.”

LG is not the first company to incorporate this type of sound amplifier technology into face masks. Use Razer’s Project Hazel mask (which is expected to be available in limited quantities later this year). Provide a similar setup.. The Razer mask also has LED lighting, so LG.

The new LG PuriCare mask weighs 94 grams and has a built-in 1,000mAh battery that can be charged via USB in 2 hours. LG claims it’s comfortable enough to wear for up to 8 hours at a time, but in my experience no mask is really comfortable after a few hours.

In particular, LG does not claim that the mask protects against the new coronavirus, but suggested that it did when the product was first announced.Certainly some air purifying filters Catch particles The size of the virus that causes COVID-19 cannot be claimed in this regard without scientific research on this particular product and details on the type of filter used. Masks are certainly better than without masks, and the best masks are the ones you can wear happily.

Anyway, welcome to 2021: We are currently updating the face mask specifications.
