The mask is made with transparent anti-fog material and will have an ultraviolet light emitter from inside, it will be disinfected itself when plugged with a USB-C for few minutes (approx. in 10minutes), the mask can disinfect itself after every use. Each emitter would be effective only for one-half moth, which is way better than the N95 mask which is effective only for 8 hours (N9)5 masks is a specification decided by the US Food and Drug Administration, they ensure that the mask would block 95% of the germs and bacteria from entering into the body, Huami has no words regarding the aim to meet N95’s specification.

Huami is the same company that develops Xiaomi’s wearable like smartwatches, Mi band, etc. Huami claimed that it will be helpful in unlocking face because our smartphone’s face ID uses the IR sensor, and with transparent masks, the IR spectrum will be able to identify the face in visible light.

It takes as little as 6-12 months from ideation to market rollout. Yu also reportedly shared that the masks are meant for the “mass consumer market” to protect people all over the world from viruses as well as everyday air pollutionPengtao Yu, Vice President of Industrial Design

Also, the company has a decent record of availing tech products at an affordable price. It makes Xiaomi’s wearables which cost around $40, also Amazefit Bip, Amazefit’s smartwatch whose battery life is measured in weeks, and the company avail such product at $80.

Huami’s Aeri transparent self-disinfecting mask is not just to protect us from coronavirus and can be used to stay safe from air pollution. The company decides to design such a mask that is more protected and more breathable than the available ones. All this news is revealed by a report from Tech Crunch and they discussed all this information with the company in a telephonic interview.
