A company has created a smart face mask that lets you talk to your phone -- and amplifies your voice. The Japanese startup Donut Robotics created a gadget that goes over the top of your regular face mask. It features a Bluetooth connection to your phone that lets you dictate messages and make calls. It even translates speech into different languages.
Donut will soon open up preorders for Japan at a price of around $40 (£32, AU$60). The company expects to ship the masks later this year. Customers in other parts of the world will have to wait, though Ono told Reuters he'd like to sell the device in other countries.
