Another pandemic fuelled innovative piece of technology: C-FACE Smart Mask! Japanese start up Donuts Robotics has developed a plastic and silicon face mask that can translate speeches into 8 different languages. Connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and through a microphone inside the mask, it can translate the speaker’s words into text messages as well as into other languages. The team first worked on a translator robot prototype aimed to help visitors navigate airports. When Covid hit, they had to quickly adapt their prototype to suit new needs since airports activities were drastically interrupted. C-FACE Smart Mask was born!
