LED lighted transforming face masks are heavily advertised, but I definitely haven’t seen them in person. I’m glad I took a chance on this Depointer Life LED Mask with Bluetooth App, though, because, sure enough, these things are fantastic. This mask is not cheap, but it does work great.
Basically, this mask has low-resolution RGB LEDs embedded in it. Using the free Shining Mask app, you’re able to access a large library of pre-made designs, both static and animated. You can also have the mask display your own emojis and text, as well as use your own images from your photo library. It’s easy to use and a ton of fun.
This version of the mask takes 3 AA batteries (not included) but they also have a slightly more expensive version that is rechargeable. Personally, I find it more convenient to use the AA batteries, but your mileage may vary. It’s supposed to run about 12 – 16 hours depending upon usage.
About the only complaint I have with this product is that the mask itself is not particularly comfortable, so it’s not ideal for wearing it for more than short bursts. The straps are kind of cheap and hurt my ears. Visibility through the eye slits is also not the best, so definitely be careful walking with this on.
Overall, this mask is fantastic. Since the app offers limitless customization, you’ll be able to do anything you want with the mask’s display. There are even various music modes where you can sync the display to what’s being played on your phone, as well as external gesture control to change what’s displayed on the mask. Even with the comfort not being the best, this is still a product that’s easy to recommend.
