"Razer acknowledges the uncertainty in the road ahead, and so it was our duty to help protect our community members and prepare them from invisible threats", says CEO Min-Liang Tan.

Leave it to a gaming company to really push forward the technology space, as Razer has done with its new line of smart face masks.

That means the mask's interior lights up automatically when dark - illuminating your mouth. The mask has a transparent design that will let others see your face when you speak, and a inbuilt mic-and-amplifier combo.

However, the big caveat with Project Brooklyn is that while Razer says the concept was inspired by current products like the Razer Iskur and includes components that are technically available (though only in very early stages of development), at least for now, Project Brooklyn only really exists in renders and the imaginations of Razer's designers. Additionally, there is a microphone built into the mask that allows for voices to be amplified instead of muffled. It can be custom-made to fit your face shape.

Razer says Project Hazel will make use of active disc-type ventilators - which will filter air on its way in, in addition to letting out Carbon dioxide upon exhalation. The silicon guard sits around your face to prevent air leaking in.

The mask is also transparent so that people can witness your smug face smiling through it, and is constructed from silicone so that it forms on your face more comfortably. The smart mask is made from recycled plastic and is waterproof and scratch resistant. This case should keep your mask safe when it's not in use. Razer says that the chair is created to "redefine the meaning of total immersion". Visuals would be delivered by a 60-inch rollable OLED display that retracts and folds into the chair when not in use.

For people who have been largely stuck at home for the better part of the year and are yearning for some more engaging entertainment, Razer's Project Brooklyn is basically an attempt to transform a typical gaming chair into a full-on futuristic battle station. Similarly, the armrests adjust and retract as needed depending on if you're playing on PC with mouse and keyboard or console with a controller. "This year, the firm has imagined what could be considered the flawless next-generation gaming setup in the form of a Razer gaming cockpit, dubbed 'Project Brooklyn". And to top it of, of course, it features Razer Chroma RGB lighting.

Project Brooklyn's leather-stitched seat has cushions that support your unique body shape, as per the company.
