When first revealed in January, Razer's Project Hazel face mask seemed almost like a meme, a proof of concept or a publicity stunt rather than a real product.
And yet, six months later, during the Razer E3 2021 Keynote, it has been announced that Project Hazel is now becoming a reality.
As revealed by Min-Liang Tan, Razer's co-founder and CEO, Project Hazel is now entering its final designing and testing phases, and once they have all the necessary certificates and are satisfied with the design, they will start with the full-capacity production.
Production is expected to start in late summer, and Project Hazel face masks will become available "early Q4 2021", which most likely means sometime in October.
Tan states that they expect "insane demand" for Project Hazel, and thus they probably won't be able to ship them to everyone interested from the get-go.
In order to make the process as smooth and as transparent as possible, and due to limited quantities, they will sell Project Hazel by drops.
And if you want to be amongst the first proud owners of this unusual face mask, here's what will you need to do.
Where to sign up for Project Hazel drops?
If you are interested in buying Project Hazel and want to make sure that you will get your unit, the best thing to do is to sign up immediately, so that Razer knows that you are interested in buying the product.
Project Hazel will exclusively be available via Razor's official website, and that's the only place where you will be able to buy Project Hazel.
The first step in the process is to sign up over at the official Project Hazel page.
- Head to Razer's website.
- Open Project Hazel's page.
- Enter your first and last name, location, and email address.
- Click Submit
And that's it, you are all set! Now all that has left is to be patient and to check your email regularly, as they will notify you as soon as the first units become available, and people who have signed up will have priority over other potential buyers.
Unfortunately, this doesn't guarantee that you will get your Project Hazel face mask when the first drop arrives, as there will still be a limited amount of them, and the demand will be high, but it significantly increases your chances to get one.
