Stop Worrying About Odors With The Air Purifying Collar

Even if you have an air purifier in every room in your home and at your office, you still breathe air outside of these places. Fortunately, a new solution may be available soon.  

One of the finalists in the 2013 Electrolux Design Lab contest is a portable air purifier that not only cleans the air whereever you go, but also looks fantastically fashionable. Of course, if you don't like the way the air purifier looks, it's also small and inconspicious enough that you can hide it under your shirt collar. 

 This is great news because, aside from the immediate, obvious benefit of providing the wearer with clean air free of allergens, it also will clear out the nauseating smells that are so prevelant in modern city life. Just imagine walking beside a full dumpster and not smelling the trash. This can be good for most people, but for those who have sensitivities to cigarette smoke or perfume, it can prevent migraines and other associated health problems. 

Of course, if you like the smell of perfume, you'll be happy to know the device comes with perfume cartridges so you can smell your favorite scent wherever you go. 

Let's just hope the product moves beyond a concept in a design contest and becomes something a little more real.
