New York (CNN Business)Rapper will. i. am wants to make face masks a high-end, high-tech statement.

The Black Eyed Peas member announced this week he is teaming up with Honeywell to launch XUPERMASK, a $299 mask with a ton of bells and whistles.

The XUPERMASK was designed by will. i. am, Honeywell and Jose Fernandez, the designer behind Elon Musk's SpaceX suits.

His new role as a mask designer comes as some states have started lifting mandatory mask mandates amid the rise of Covid-19 vaccinations in the US.

Still, experts say Americans won't be setting masks aside anytime soon.

"SARS happened in Japan and Southeast Asia, and they got over it, and they still wear masks," will. i. am told the New York Times.

The XUPERMASKS comes with a carry case, three months of HEPA filters, different-sized ear tips and a charging cable.

The mask will drop on April 8 on its website, Xupermask. com.
