The smart mask was developed by Donut R Tokyo
Japan has created a smart mask with a translator and speech repeater
The smart mask was developed by Donut Robotics, and it is called the C-mask. Under the guise of a seemingly ordinary protective mask, a full-fledged gadget with Bluetooth and voice dialing is hidden. Moreover, the mask is capable of translating speech into different languages!
In addition, the C-mask has a voice relay function via a smartphone. In a pandemic and quarantine, this gadget may be very much in demand, especially in educational institutions and at public events, where wearing a mask may be a requirement. The only pity is that the start of sales is scheduled only at the end of the year and, most likely, the mask can be bought only in its homeland - in Japan. By the way, the price is quite adequate - only 40 $.
