The Fujitsu Lifebook concept model AH78 is the first computer that actively purifies the air while you use it.

In the new Future of Home Living report, the PSFK Labs team look at the trend of Purified Living which uncovers how a range of tech-enabled and natural filtering systems are being designed to improve the environmental quality of people’s living spaces. A manifestation of this trend is the laptop concept by Fujitsu, which actively cleans and purifies its surrounding air when it is switched on.

The Fujitsu Lifebook model AH78 is the first laptop in the world to include a “nanoe” air purification unit,  which can filter tobacco odor, pollen, and fungi from the air. In adopting this new approach, the Japanese company reported a 99% reduction of airborne odors and allergens during its internal testing.

We like the concept for its multipurpose design, offering users the benefit of a healthier work environment without requiring additional accessories or extra steps. Paul Moore, VP, Mobile Product Management & Marketing at Fujitsu America, says that the product’s aesthetically pleasing design is just as important as doing good for humans:

As design considerations for the future, delivering a device that fits the décor and can accomplish multiple tasks. Design is critical. Gone are the days when a PC looked like a piece of office equipment.

The Fujitsu lifebook and designs like it fall under the larger theme we’re calling Equilibrium, which points to the way architects and designers are integrating feelings of balance, health, and well-being into people’s living spaces and everyday lives.
