Yeah, we’re polluting this planet, alright. Whether our politicians will ever get their act together remains to be seen, but that doesn’t mean individuals and companies can’t do anything in the meantime. And considering how bad things are getting in China, it’s no surprise to see the above Wearable Air Purifier come out of there. It’s a strange looking contraction that you wear on your head, like a futuristic headset, but whose entire purpose is to attempt to purify the air you breathe. It draws dirty atmosphere through the upper section and funnels it through filters and electrostatic dust removal panels before directing it right under your nose. The air, once cleaned, is 99.9% free of contaminants. Sensors keep track of how hard they’ve had to work, providing your smartphone with a map of your city’s dirtiest areas. You also get data on temperature, humidity, CO2 levels and more.
Currently the device’s battery life stands at 6-8 hours, but there are plans to increase that to 10 hours. It’s not available yet, but the company is seeking funding to bring it to market.
