Japan’s Very Own Air-Shower System

By David Ponce

How’s an air-shower grab ya? Well, that’s exactly the sort of fun you can choose to subject yourself to if you happen to live in the Riche Tamagawa Riverside complex located in Tokyo’s Ota-ku. Located near the entrance, this “air-shower” system is meant to remove pollen, dust and other allergens from your person before you enter your immaculate sanctuary. It’s 2 meters tall and 90 centimeters wide, and contains 12 nozzles that pump air all over you for 20 seconds, presumably enough time to fluff you up real good.

An official of Mazya Housing that developed the condominium complex said that the apartments in the structure are selling well.

The person who came up with the idea to place the air-shower in the building suffers from hay fever. The company is now considering the possibility of developing another housing complex equipped with the air-shower system.

I’m not sure how well this would sell in the US, but if there a $4billion market for pet products, there’s got to be some love left for something like this.
