You know what they say about things seeming to be too good to be true...  whistle:

They get bought by simple bucket wearing folk and ultimately end up as cupboardware..  whistle:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

rubschin:  I rather fear this is the future. 
 
It will reduce competition, will be lower quality and actually increase the cost if you want to be able to watch non aerial delivered content in more than one room

Looks better than the standards masks and has none of the problems.  rubschin:

It's a Razr product though so something tells me this is not going to be cheap.  noooo:
Jeez that does look the dogs bollocks in masks doesn't it?
 
Sadly not available yet even in the USA and I want one  angry041:

What do we reckon for UK price and availability.  My guess 150 and half past lockdown 5.0

Looks like we were both wrong. Available this year and judging from the exchange rate 72.50 It does seem that they have dropped at least one of the functions that was making it a possible purchase for me in order to reduce the weight.  rubschin:

It's designed to be an effects piece for stage and street magicians. That was what Brian Brushwood was originally before he became part of the Modern Rogue team.
