Bengaluru, NFAPost News Service: Dyson has recently won the patent for headphones that double up as air purifiers to help you breathe clean and fresh air. This comes as a big relief to those looking for highly-portable air filters to improve the air quality in places
with rising levels of pollution.
The patent is still at a nascent stage which reveals a headphone set with air filters integrated into its earcups, according to Bloomberg. The wearable purifier enables users to retract a second headband over their mouth to generate fresh and purified air through its propellers.
The propellers reportedly spin at 12,000rpm and intake in 1.4 litres of air per second to remove particles such as dust and bacteria. The purified air is then routed back to the centre of the mouth band to help you with clean and fresh air.
Dyson’s headphone based Air-purifiers could soon replace the surgical masks in real-life scenarios in homes, hospitals and public places across Asian countries. Bloomberg has cited in its recent report that Asia and Shanghai have been critical to Dyson’s growth, while the latter has been the best-selling city for its purifiers in 2017.
