With the entire world walking around with face masks, you can bet companies are going to try to make it advance and futuristic.

Well, the future is now because a Japanese robotics company – Donut Robotics – has created a face mask that doubles as a translator. It’s called ‘C-Face’, and it has microphones in the mask which sends your speech to a smartphone app, which then translates it to the chosen language.

The company stated that the lightweight silicon device would be beneficial to people like doctors who need to speak to patients from a distance.

Donut Robotics CEO Taisuke Ono said, “Despite the coronavirus, we sometimes need to meet directly with each other.”

As of now, it translates the Japanese language to English, Korean, and more. They didn’t say if it would work in reverse.

However, the C-Face mask doesn’t protect you from the COVID-19 virus. You will still need to wear a face mask underneath.

Regardless of that, the company managed to raise close to US$950,000 from crowdfunding. Ono believes its success was directly related to people wanting new technology to make it easy during these troubling times.

But Japan is not the only ones slapping tech in face masks. Singapore is also developing masks that have sensors in them.

The sensors will be able to monitor body temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels which can be transferred to a companion app. But it will be mainly focused at frontliners treating COVID-19 patients.

Scientist Loh Xian Jun who worked on the mask, said, “Many of these frontline workers will be exposed to patients when they are taking their vital signs. This poses a health risk to the nurses, and we wanted to think about a way to reduce such risk.”

Investors of the mask said that the device could also be used to monitor vital signs of migrant workers, and they hope to run a trial soon before making it commercially available.

It’s great that these companies are trying a different way to combat the virus. But regular face masks (which works just fine without fancy gadgets and gizmos) are inexpensive, and if these companies are going to charge you an arm and leg for it, it defeats the purpose.

But let’s see what the future holds.
