The quality of the air around us isn鈥檛 quite what it used to be, and these days we have to take steps to make sure the air we breathe is as clean and fresh as it can be. Luckily, it鈥檚聽easy to purify our own homes聽by decorating our spaces with聽houseplants that聽help clean the air we breathe, or putting up natural air fresheners that help make our homes smell amazing.聽It鈥檚 also a good thing that there are聽air monitors that can help us聽track the air quality in our surroundings.

Fortunately, we can now also track and purify the air around us while on the go with a device聽called iBreathe, a new wearable air purifier that fits easily in your hand.

iBreathe

Currently crowdfunding on Indieogo,聽iBreathe聽is a wearable air purifier and air quality tracker that鈥檚 compatible with iOS and Android devices. With this device, you can track and filter the air you breathe anytime and anywhere. iBreathe checks the quality of the air around you in real time and purifies it within seconds by destroying the allergens and bacteria particles in the air.

Here鈥檚 how it works:聽iBreathe is built with two base modules that allow it to track the air quality and purify it at the same time. The device聽uses a module to create negative ions and release them into the air to neutralize particles of pollution like dust, bacteria, viruses, pollen and more. Negative ions are odorless, tasteless and invisible molecules that not only help keep the air clean, but also聽help raise serotonin levels to聽lift moods, relieve stress and enhance energy levels.

iBreathe app

The device takes environmental data in real time and transmits the information to your mobile device via an app, which then聽transforms the info into recommendations that are easy to understand and follow. It can clean the air within 20 square meters if indoors and within eight square meters outdoors. When it detects clean air, the device goes into sleep mode to conserve power, which is not a problem because it comes聽with a rechargeable battery that can last for up to eight hours of use.聽It also comes in聽a sleek, modern design, so you聽can bring it with you anywhere 鈥 at home, in the car, on your bus ride, at your office聽or even at the gym.

Developed by a team in the UK, iBreathe has already blasted through its crowdfunding goal in Indiegogo, with still over 20 days to go in the campaign. Looks like a lot of folks are interested in a wearable air tracker to help them breathe clean air wherever they go!
