Razer’s Project Hazel personal air purifier has been rebranded as the Razer Zephyr ahead of a community beta test and an official release.
Project Hazel was announced in January as a prototype equipped with voice amplification technology, RGB lighting, and a transparent face shield, in addition to N95-medical grade respirators that would be disinfected with UV light when placed in their wireless charging box.
Razer initially said it was merely preparing a prototype of Project Hazel for CES 2021, but in March, it decided to make the personal air purifier a real product. Then it announced at E3 in June that it expected the first Project Hazel units to reach consumers by the end of the year.
Razer didn’t say when it expected to ship the Razer Zephyr to beta testers or provide additional information about the product’s intended release date. Pricing has also not been released, though its feature set suggests that it’s probably not going to be particularly affordable.
