LG makes a wearable air purifier for your face similar to purify the air before it enters your lungs. The electronics giant has decided to create an electronic air purifier onto your face to scrub your inhalations clean before they reach your lungs. The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier has a pair of three-speed fans and a pair of HEPA-style filters.

As you breathe, a built-in “respiratory sensor” inside will detect how fast you breathe, as well as its volume, to adjust the fan speed. LG says that it expects people to wear the device for long periods of time, therefore its 820mAh battery will run for eight hours on a single charge.
When not in use, the mask has a storage case that emits ultraviolet LED lights that purify the surface while it recharges. The device also connects to your smartphone, telling you when the filters need replacing. LG says that every component is replaceable and recyclable. Currently, the cost of the device is known. More information is expected to be released at LG’s glitzy press conference at IFA in September.
