World’s first Wearable Air Purifier filters air pollution to keep illness at bay
Taking inspiration from the popularity of wearable technology and the grip situation regarding escalating pollution around the world, a tech team in China’s Chongqing municipality has come up with the world’s first air purifier. The Wearable Air Purifier by Wind Six team looks like a sturdy headphone with mic, but in reality it filters the air user breathes-in through the nostrils. Equipped with industrial-grade sensor and non-ozone electrostatic dust removal technology, the wearable air filter device provides 99.9% air filtration in the windiest conditions too.
The sensors provide updated information about the quality of air on your mobile devices via a connected app which warns on any event of increase in air pollution. The information can be the air quality, PM2.5 content in air, CO2 content, temperature and humidity levels. Moreover the user can check on the map for air quality and pollution levels at certain locations they have visited while wearing this device.
Wearable Air Purifier can also be worn while at home to adjust the air-conditioning levels. For now the device can run for around 6-8 hours on single charge but the makers are keen on increasing that time to at-least 10 hours in one go. The air filter is completely washable after long duration of use since it is going to collect dust particles on the go.
This intuitive device is currently in prototype stage and is seeking funding to push into mass production so that it can be used by people all around the world. Wearable Air Purifier is going to be a must have gadget for people who live in polluted cities or places where there are chemical pollutants in the air.
