Is it an elaborate early April Fool’s joke?
This was my first and only thought
I just can’t believe this is real, not so close to April 1st
I think it really needs some machine learning synergy on the cloud-based blockchain.
At least it’s wireless
I’ll believe this is real when there are artificial gills like the ones the jedi use to breath underwater. Otherwise it’s probably just a filter, same as the face masks.
Looks cool but not as cool as breathable air
I live in the London area. Driving out to the mountains and just breathing fresh air is one of my favourite things.
This, you dont know how much you miss good air untill you get it again.
I think this product is pretty legit, I was actually gathering concept images and starting to think about something like this a few years ago. I’ve moved to a rural wilderness since then and mothballed the idea.
This is why I don’t understand people in Los Angeles being in such a hurry to unmask. I’ve always worn masks when cycling and now I think I will always do it whenever outside. The air so so polluted it feels like a lungful of ash without a mask.
Smart move, that stuff cant be healthy. Good on you for cycling.
Do they also remove ear wax? / s
I think that will be there next upgrade. In ear headphones/hoovers with built in jet packs.
I’ll buy them when they do them right, with a hermetically closed helmet and a mouth opening for an HEPA filter. But it has to look like this
I feel like the only place most people would feel comfortable wearing a product that looks like this would be home, but then since they’re home… they probably wouldn’t care to wear a mask or facial air purifier like this.
Beyond that, the filtration isn’t NIOSH-approved so it just seems like the security theater equivalent of PPE?
And it would be pointless for anyone with a beard.
Yup. It blows my mind how beards haven’t been a major point of discussion in the last 2 years in terms of mask efficacy being reduced considerably when one has a beard.
Reminds me when sound cards had integrated firewire ports and game ports and stuff, just random unrelated things bundled in them.
fast forward 10 year and we are all wearing one while we hover down the street on Back to the future style hover boards, not those shitty ones with wheels.
This seems like a dumb idea
Can’t wait to see someone wearing them in the wild.
i want one
