The Morning After: Razer's light-up smart face mask finally goes on sale
After a long run of teasing the RGB-lit Zephyr mask, Razer is finally ready to sell it to die-hard fans — or possibly cosplayers. The Zephyr costs $100 or there's a $150 Starter Pack with three replacement filter kits. Alas, the Starter Pack is already listed as "out of stock," and the mask by itself is still "coming soon."

Yes, you can customize the lighting through a companion app, but the highlight is a dual-fan active air filtration system with N95 filters — something I'd never thought I'd be writing about a Razer device.

Microsoft Surface Duo 2 reviewIts second dual-screen hybrid is another letdown.EngadgetMicrosoft's dual-screen ambitions continue to struggle.

Surface Duo 2 review: Microsoft's second dual-screen hybrid is a letdown
Microsoft isn't giving up on its dual-screen dreams. The company is back this year with a new Surface Duo that looks like it might fix some of the original's flaws. Instead of a finicky and low-quality camera, the Duo 2 packs a triple-sensor system on its rear, in addition to a selfie shooter inside. The device also has a narrower overall footprint, faster-refreshing screens and some updated software. There's also support for Microsoft's Slim Pen 2, which should make drawing and taking notes a more intuitive experience.

But despite having addressed many of the previous generation's issues and adding some useful features, the Duo 2 remains a frustrating device. And at $1,500, it's still a pricey product with a niche, limited appeal.

Hardware and design changesBy now, you're probably familiar with the Duo's proposition. The second generation features a pair of 5.8-inch screens connected by a hinge. It's also running Android 11 this year, with some tweaks to improve multi-display use. Combined, the two panels offer an 8.3-inch canvas, which is slightly bigger than before. You can flip one screen all the way around to use the Duo 2 in a phone-like single-screen state, use one side as a stand to prop up the other half or have both displays facing you like a book or tablet.
