LG has actually just revealed their newest health care gizmo: the battery-powered LG PuriCare Wearable Air Filter, which is ideal on brand name for the year2020
While the company’s announcement definitely did not discuss the novel coronavirus that’s turned the world upside down, LG stated in a press release that their new wearable “solves the problem of homemade masks being of inconsistent quality and disposal masks remaining in short supply.”
Made completely from recyclable material, the PuriCare Wearable appears like your normal face mask we’ve all gotten used to over the last couple of months, with elastic straps that loop around your ears to protect the filter over your mouth and nose.
LG takes care not to declare this mask will safeguard you from the novel coronavirus, however they note a remarkable set of features for the PuriCare, consisting of dual fans and “patented Respiratory Sensing unit” that pulls air through two H13 HEPA filters that block 99.97 percent of airborne particulates as small as 0.3 microns.
” At a time when consumers are seeking ways to make life much safer and more convenient, it’s important that we have the ability to provide options that add measureable worth,” stated Dan Song, president of LG Electronic devices House Device & Air Solution Company, in a news release.
New entry in the PuriCare line
The mask is the most recent product in LG’s PuriCare line, which are more dedicated to enhancing air quality around the home with air purifiers and dehumidifiers. Improving the air quality on the go follows this mission, though it’s a big jump to clearing out viral particles.
The mask operates on a 820 mAh rechargeable battery and includes a charger case and the mask can run from two to eight hours on high or low settings, respectively, according to LG.
The case also consists of UV-LEDs that may eliminate damaging pathogens to keep the mask sanitary in between uses. No word yet on whether they’ll include a voice-modulator to make us all sound like supervillains, which would absolutely make this a must-buy.
LG plans to flaunt the PuriCare Wearable at IFA 2020 next week where hopefully we’ll get more details on a possible release date and prices.
