LG made a mini Air Purifier you wear as a mask
LG has given the humble face mask a technological overhaul; its new Puricare Wearable Air Purifier will filter the air around you and help you breath through the mask with fans.
The mask will be available towards the end of the year, and will be officially introduced at this year’s IFA gadget expo when it kicks off next week.
The fan uses a sensor that will detect and cycle your breath, making breathing through an uncomfortable mask that much easier. It uses H13 HEPA filters, similar to those used by LG’s home air purifiers.
It has enough battery life for eight hours of use. And as an added bonus, the charging case is equipped with ultraviolet lights, that will kill any germs that might be sitting on top of the mask.
LG says that its wearable air purifier has been produced to minimize air leakage around the nose and chin, and comfortable enough to wear for hours.
