The Japanese company is developing smart masks for the Corona era

A Japanese startup, Donut Robotics, has developed an internet-connected "smart mask" that can transform face information into a normal state during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic while translating information and translations from Japanese. Transferring information to eight other languages.

The white C-shaped plastic mask is suitable for standard masks and is connected via Bluetooth to the application installed on a smartphone or tablet. He can convert speech to SMS, make a call or extend the wearer of the mask.

"We have worked hard for many years to develop robots and we have used this technology to develop a product that can respond to the effects of coronaviruses on society," said Donut Robotics CEO (Tesuke Ono).

Donut Robotics engineers developed masks while looking for products to help the company overcome the epidemic. With the spread of the Corona virus, the company just received an order to provide teachers and machine translation at Tokyo Haneda Airport. This product faces a mysterious future after the collapse of air traffic.

As of September, the first 5,000 Robotics C-Mask donuts will be shipped to Japan, and Ono is also looking for sales in China, the US, and Europe. He said he is very interested.

By offering masks for $ 40, the Japanese company wants to build a huge market that didn't exist a few months ago. According to Ono, one goal was to generate revenue from subscriber services provided by downloaded user applications.
