Razer no longer claims its Zephyr mask uses ‘N95-grade’ filters

Introduction

  • You must be aware of Razer’s popular Zephyr mask which costs $100. But, with the announcement of Zephyr Pro last week, a series of claims have surfaced about Razer overstating the protection of its Zephyr mask. Razer has responded to such claims by removing “N95-grade” from the page of the product as recently as last week itself.
  • If you want to know more about the news on the Razer mask, we suggest you read this blog post till the end.
  • In this post, we will be covering the news on the Razer mask no longer carrying the “N95-grade” filters claim.

About the Razer Mask

  • The term, Razer N95 was used synonymously to the mask by Zephyr because Razer had mentioned ‘N95-grade’ filters in many places to refer to the filtration process and the importance of its replaceable filters. The filters were touted as N95-grade due to their 99% bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE). Razer has removed the term, N95-grade’ filters and instead uses ‘air purification filters’ for the Razer mask. As per Razer’s claims, it passed the 95% particulate filtration efficiency threshold during testing but in reality, the whole mask, including the filters, would have to filter 95% of particles to be of N95-grade. Not only that, but the Zephyr mask would also have to clear the regulators’ tests.
  • Razer has not provided any official statement on removing the mention of ‘N95-grade’ filters from the description of its mask. As per a tweet made by the company on Saturday, the Zephyr Razer mask and the Zephyr Razer Pro masks should not be treated as medical devices or surgical masks, or even personal protective equipment (PPE). The company also said that the Razer masks are not meant for medical or clinical use.
  • As far as altering controversial information on its site is concerned, Zephyr had done the same previously too. Previously in its FAQ section, Zephyr had mentioned that its mask could be considered as a surgical mask, PPE, or medical device. It claimed so due to the Razer mask’s 99% BFE rating. It now claims that the Zephyr Razer mask and the Zephyr Razer Pro masks should not be treated as medical devices or surgical masks, or even personal protective equipment (PPE). The company now also claims that its masks are not meant for medical or clinical use.
  •  Although Zephyr has run its Razer mask through internal tests, it needs to undergo external tests by external bodies for helping people trust the product. These external tests should be run for the Zephyr Pro mask as well. What is the Zephyr Pro mask? It is a ramped-up version of the Zephyr mask that has voice amplification and is going to be launched in 2022.

More blogs:

  • Reports suggest that Razer removed the mentions of the N95-grade filters  from its Razer mask due to pressure from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and NIOSH but the company has strongly refuted the claims. Razer said it had not received any instructions from external agencies and the change was done to remove any confusion that customers may have regarding the certification of the mask.
  • The change in the description of the Zephyr mask comes at a time when public health officials of various countries have instructed the public to wear N95 and KN95 masks instead of cloth masks as the former ones are said to provide better protection against the Omicron variant.

Closing

  • N95 masks have become a necessity in the current situation when the number of COVID cases has gone up again after a slump period. Hospitals are on the verge of burning out. The new variants of COVID – Omicron and Delta – are said to be highly contagious. In such a situation only N95 masks can provide the best protection. Now that Zephyr has removed mentions of ‘N95-grade’ filters from its Razer mask, the search for a good N95 mask has begun. You have to check if external agencies have certified the masks that you purchase. Only then you can trust them.

LinkedIn Microsoft-like and LinkedIn Zoom-like Audio and Video Events

  • LinkedIn’s new event platform (beta version) will consist of all the necessary tools that enable interactive content to run. Therefore, organizers need not take help from third-party software for the same.
  • The brand-new Events platform will allow hosts to operate and record their events from LinkedIn itself. The platform itself will consist of tools that will enable hosts and attendees to interact through live sessions. The LinkedIn Microsoft-like platform will also enable online attendees to interact with each other while the event continues and also when the event is over. Organizers can easily promote these events on LinkedIn itself.
  • The LinkedIn Microsoft-like or LinkedIn Zoom-like platform will first allow individual creators to reach out to a bigger audience. The topics that are going to be covered in the live events are Career Development and Recruitment, among others.

More blogs:

4) 82% of audiences like seeing live streams conducted by brands.

How will the LinkedIn Microsoft-like Video and Audio Platform be beneficial?

Here are the ways how the virtual events platform of LinkedIn will be beneficial:

1) It will bring together dispersed teams – An online virtual events platform will help in bringing together professionals or team members who are not physically present at one place.

2) It will be an all-in-one platform – By an all-in-one platform, we mean one platform that allows people to conduct meetings, phone calls, webinars, and chats, all in one place.

3) It will generate more ROI – It will definitely help generate more return on investment as is also the case with Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

Closing

Why Metaverse Is The Future For Virtual Reality?

metaverse
  • If you’ve ever wondered if the future of virtual reality is coming from the Internet, then you’ve likely heard of the metaverse. A unified technology that combines video, augmented reality, and virtual reality, the metaverse could be the answer to that question. Supporters of the technology see people playing, working, and even taking virtual vacations around the world. Moreover, managing partner of Epyllion Industries, Matthew Ball, predicts that the metaverse will be the future of the Internet.

Future of Metaverse For Virtual Reality

  • While some critics argue that it’s not the most exciting thing to see in virtual reality, Metaverse has many positive features. The concept of interoperability enables digital content to be shared across spaces. This allows users to create virtual worlds of their own and share them with other players. Furthermore, developers of other virtual reality games can leverage this idea to create new, interactive landscapes and virtual economies.
  • Metaverses are unique in that they encourage human interaction beyond text-based chat. The concept of a centralized online environment that connects humans in an entirely new way is extremely exciting. Users are able to interact with one another through voice communication and VR or AR glasses. This allows for many different types of experiences, from study groups to skydiving. Companies like Facebook and Meta are working on this concept.
  • This concept opens up a whole new economy and currency. In addition, it also opens up a new kind of economy, and it requires the development of new technologies such as digital twins. There are also issues of diversity, privacy, and ethical behavior that will need to be dealt with. However, the benefits of the metaverse outweigh the negatives. The metaverse could be the future of virtual reality.

More blogs:

  • The metaverse offers a new form of economics. In addition to using real money to buy virtual land, users can also purchase avatars, hats, and other virtual goods with their cryptocurrency. In this way, the metaverse can facilitate a new economy in the real world. Further, it will provide a better platform for businesses to work together and increase productivity. There will be no need for separate identities in the metaverse.
  • Besides a virtual world, the metaverse will also enable human interaction, enabling users to interact with each other. Instead of text-based chat, users will have voice and video communications, which will allow them to do everything in the metaverse. In a metaverse, humans will be able to play video games together, participate in discussions, and work on projects together. The possibilities are endless. It’s no surprise that big companies are already adopting the technology for task-specific purposes. Microsoft recently announced that it had acquired 60,000 Oculus Quest 2 headsets for training and development.
  • With the right infrastructure, the metaverse will enable users to easily hop between different virtual realms. The virtual world will allow people to work, shop, and chat with each other in the same world. The same applies to the other way around. For example, a conference room will be integrated into the metaverse. It will be the future for VR. There will be no need to leave the home. With the right tools, it can be an excellent tool to improve the experience of working and collaborating.
  • The metaverse can include augmented reality and virtual reality. The user doesn’t need to be restricted to a particular device in order to enjoy it. For example, a person can play the game on their mobile phone. In the future, it can be accessed from a computer or a mobile phone. This is a revolutionary change for the industry. This technology will allow users to use it for free.
  • While the metaverse is not yet complete, it will still be the future of virtual reality. Imagine a world in which people can sell and buy virtual items. The entire metaverse will be a digital economy, where users can buy and sell goods. The metaverse can be interoperable. For example, a person could take clothing from the mall to a movie theater in the same space. And most platforms have virtual identities tied to a specific platform. With the metaverse, a person’s digital identity can be copied from one social network to the other.

 Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games

  • Although blockchain features, as far as infusing them in games is concerned, have not been highly regarded. However, they have been backed by the President of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda. In a letter published by Matsuda, mention has been made of the fact that Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games as he calls decentralized blockchain games “a major strategic theme” for Square Enix starting from 2022. Although Matsuda has not mentioned titles of games, he has hinted at Square Enix’s future games incorporating decentralized blockchain technology.
  • In addition to the fact that Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games, the letter also mentions incorporating token economies by Square Enix for fostering self-sustaining game growth. Matsuda acknowledged the fact that many will be apprehensive about the incorporation of decentralized blockchain technology in games. However, he has faith in some gamers who will “play to contribute”. How is blockchain going to help players? It will allow them to develop their own content rather than depending on “goodwill and volunteer spirit” as per Matsuda. In other words, users will be interested in developing content for rewards.
  • While announcing the news that Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games, Matsuda hasn’t made any announcements regarding plans for incorporating NFTs in the games of Square Enix. However, he had hopes of NFTs becoming mainstream with passing time. Players may even be able to purchase NFTs inside Square Enix’s games in the future. But, there has been no official announcement.
  • Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games now but will be observing trends in the market carefully so as to build strategies accordingly. Matsuda even says that Square Enix may issue its own tokens in the future and this statement fills the players’ minds with optimism. Only time will tell if the market is favorable for the same.

  • He says the ecosystem of token economies as far as games are concerned, lies at the core of “decentralized gaming” and it has the potential of becoming a huge trend in the coming years. Square Enix President also says that although Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games that does not mean it will not continue investing in centralized games. It will do that too. He further says that there exists the required infrastructure for crypto technology but society has also slowly learned to embrace crypto.
  • It is to be noted that although Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games, there has been a rapid rise in investments in blockchain technology. Among the companies, who are hell-bent on legitimizing blockchain, are the gaming companies. Square Enix had already invested in the metaverse before. Yes, that’s true. It did so by participating in a $2 million funding round for the game, The Sandbox. The Sandbox is a metaverse game based on Ethereum technology. Matsuda further says that Square Enix’s investments in other evolving technologies are going to double in the future.
  • The fact that Square Enix is investing in decentralized blockchain games, itself reaffirms the position of Ubisoft which has said that it will be committed to its ambitions related to NFT and Blockchain.

However, the ways they will work cannot be determined at this stage.
