A new bike concept from Thailand does the dirty work of actual air purification.

Bicycle transit is becoming a huge part of green transportation and cleaner cities, but the only way bikes can truly make a difference in our pollution levels is if each individual bike replaces a hypothetical car. In cities where most people already get around by public transit (which, coincidentally, are the cities encouraging the most bike use), bikes perhaps should be pulling more weight. Not to mention, air pollution in streets can be bad enough to make riding a bike as injurious to your lungs as smoking a pack of cigarettes, particularly in smoggy areas such as Bangkok.
