Chinese technology giant Xiaomi patented the design of a smart mask to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The patent was granted on 18 February.

Equipped with electronic components such as processors and batteries, this smart mask from Xiaomi will be able to be used to measure the quality of air that is inhaled by its users.

The component will also be accompanied by a number of sensors, such as the accelerometer and gyroscope, which have a variety of functions, one of which is to monitor user movements.

In addition to movement, a number of sensors and components embedded in the mask will collect user data, such as the duration of use of the mask, the amount of pollution absorbed on the surface of the mask, the intensity of breathing, etc.

Although not mentioned in the patent document, this Xiaomi smart mask might also be equipped with features that can detect health problems based on the user’s breathing activity.

Various data recorded and collected by this mask will be stored in the internal memory embedded in it. Then the data will also be accessible via smartphone applications wirelessly, either via infrared, Bluetooth, or NFC.

However, this smart mask is still limited to patents. It is uncertain whether Xiaomi will really develop it, reports the South China Morning Post.
