Dev Update: Introducing Our New Smartmask™ Design!
- December 3, 2019
In all honesty, Unlimi-Troop, we couldn’t keep this one to ourselves any longer. Thanks to your amazing feedback, we’ve been working hard over the last couple of months in re-thinking what our Smartmask™ should look and feel like, and the time for the big reveal is finally here.
We placed a big emphasis on improving comfort, ease of usability, design, and on giving it rocking look overall. This new design will guide our efforts as we continue the development of the Smartmask™.
Without further ado, the Unlimi-Team is excited to introduce:
The All-New Smartmask™
The new Smartmask™ comes packed with several new features without sacrificing precision, such as an interior made of soft, breathable -and fully washable, fabric, and an external silicon-like honeycomb mesh that provides for additional strength and structure.
The battery life has been extended and the hardware components further simplified and minimized: in fact, all of the hardware is now located within the bean-shaped pod in the side of the mask. The pod can be easily removed from the mask for charging, and for throwing the rest of the Smartmask™ into the washing machine after a long training session!
The Smartmask™ is also designed to come out of the box with multiple mask sizes, so you don’t need to be worried about getting a good fit!
Can You Spot the Difference?
In case you need a refresher, here are some of the main changes from our previous design:
- No more hard-plastic parts in the front of the mask, or anywhere else for that matter except for the removable pod itself. This not only simplifies maintenance and cleaning but makes the device much more durable.
- We’ve scrapped that timeless “Darth Vader” look (yes, we do really listen to your feedback 😉) in favour of a more modern-looking, and unique, Unlimitech look.
- The weight has been significantly improved because of the reduction in the number of components used and the use of better materials.
- The strap has also been simplified to go around and below the head instead of around the back and top of the head, so putting the mask on and taking it off is much easier.
Not Your Colour? We’ve Got You Covered
We get it: dark colours are not everyone’s cup of tea so, to give you a bit more of choice, we’re also introducing new colours for the Smartmask™! The current colours we’re thinking of, besides “graphite”, are “blue depths” and “rose dawn”.
To give you even more flexibility, you could choose between the different pod and mask colours when ordering! Not enough? Well, how about also having the option to personalize the mask’s fabric with any image or design you want? So, if you wish to make a new fashion statement, or have your team’s logo for all to see, it’s as easy as 1-2-click.
Well, we’ll be keeping ourselves busy to continue with the development of the Smartmask™ under this new design guide. Our aim is to start testing with it as soon as possible! We’re also working on producing more renders of the new Smartmask™, so stay tuned to this post and our site for updates on this.
