WA!SK

WA!SK is an amazing mask that alters your voice when you wear it. It is a dual structure, made of a "design mask" and a "talking mask". The surface mask can be designed by sticking together a variety of different parts in a variety of colors, shapes, and materials. The interior "talking mask" includes a micro-PC, microphone, and speaker, which enables a voice changing function through a speech synthesis program. By combining the two masks, you can experience crossover play between crafts and technology that did not exist before. In the future, we will add an automatic translation function to change the spoken words into a variety of languages and create a mask that allows the people of the world to play together.

WA!SKはかぶって話すと声が変わる不思議なマスクです。「デザインマスク」と「おしゃべりマスク」の2重構造になっています。表側の「デザインマスク」は色やカタチ、素材の異なる様々なパーツを貼り合わせてマスクをデザインできます。内側の「おしゃべりマスク」にはマイクロPC・マイク・スピーカーが組み込まれていて、音声合成プログラムによるボイスチェンジ機能を搭載しています。2つのマスクを組み合わせることで、クラフトとテクノロジーを横断したこれまでにないおめん遊びを体験できます。将来、話した言葉がリアルタイムに多言語翻訳される機能が加われば、世界中の人が一緒に遊べるマスクになります。
