Japan's Dolami X Mask: The Future of Facemasks

Technology continues to evolve, and Dolami's X Mask is a recent innovation. X-Mask is an upgrade on regular facemasks since the pandemic forced people to wear them on a daily basis. X-Mask offers amazing virtual reality experiences at an affordable price. This face mask is optimized for a VR experience rather than for safety purposes.

Introducing the next-generation face tracking mask

Dolami announced the partnership with Osaka University to develop X Mask back in 2021. This mask-type sensing gadget is capable of tracking your facial expressions in detail thanks to a series of incorporated sensors placed strategically across your face. These internal sensors work without affecting your skin, transmitting your expressions to an incredible 95% accuracy—all at a speed of 200 milliseconds and pair with any VR headset in under five seconds.

With X Mask you can easily communicate your emotions according to the situation and really be yourself in any virtual environment. This device is ideal for use in any virtual setting such as business meetings, presentations, events, or even interacting with friends and loved ones who are far away. Best of all, you won't have to break the bank to get it; it will cost $90 USD when released later this year.

Expected to launch at the end of 2023

The production of the X Mask is now underway so those looking forward to enhancing their engagements in the digital world will soon have the perfect tool for doing so!

To make this device accessible to everyone, the company will be selling it for just $90 USD- which makes it an affordable way to enhance your virtual interactions. The product will be available for purchase in the US and Japan later this year following an announced successful funding support round of 100 million yen ($730,000 USD).

The product will launch for purchase in the US and Japan later this year. 

Tech ingenuity has no limits

The X Mask is just one of many exciting advances in technology that mirrors world events and people's ingenuity toward immersive connections. With the help of VR, augmented reality glasses, and other cutting-edge technologies, we are now able to connect with each other in previously impossible ways. As these technologies continue to evolve, it will become easier and more realistic than ever before for us to stay connected no matter where we are.
