This is the Atmos, an air filtration face mask designed by Aō Air, a company that has New Zealand roots, but is based in Brooklyn, NY. Equipped with specialized fans, the Atmos uses PositivAir technology to create a positive pressure clean air environment that enables you to breathe freely. It also doesn’t require a seal around the mouth and nose.
This innovative system “allows clean, cool air to comfortably escape the mask around the face creating a continuous, one-way outflow that keeps outside air out.” When compared to antipollution or anti-allergy masks, N95, sports filtration masks, double-barreled respirators, etc., the Atmos offered “unparalleled protection” that was reportedly up to 50 times better than other top air filtration solutions.

The Atmos provides a more human experience as the user’s smile and facial expressions are visible. Plus, there is no need to worry about a seal, so you won’t have to shave that “quarantine beard” that many men have grown during the COVID-19 pandemic.
