USB + Face Mask = Clean Air…de aru?
If you think people who wear face masks in public looks kinda weird and suspicious, wait until you see this USB-powered air cleaner face mask being sold in Japan!
Roughly priced at around 2, 480 Yen, anyone can just plug the USB to his pc or laptop and wear the mask. Presto! Clean, pollen-free air! The mask has air vents that clean the air and blow them in the mask. It makes it a lot easier(and cleaner) to breathe. Plus the silicone material used for the mask makes wearing it more snug and comfy. Just make sure the computer has Windows2000/XP/Vista and MacOSX with USB support.
As nifty as it may sound, I don’t think I’d be caught dead wearing this stuff. It’s a nice invention, especially for those with sensitive nose, but I don’t think wearing it like a ninja mask while doing your usual routine won’t make you a laughing stock at the office or pantry. It’ll make a great accessory though for your Mortal Kombat group cosplay!
