The wearable is less obtrusive than the mask and measures air pollution data

Chinese cities don’t seem too optimistic about their air quality and many people find security in wearing a mask over their face. However, many masks in the market do the job poorly. In addition to lackluster filter performance, wearing a mask for extended periods of time can be too obstructive.

Startup Any Air is putting forth a wearable air purifier that resembles a headset with a mic. The contraption uses a filter on an arm that sits just below the nose to clean the air before it enters your body. The headset, named Six Wind, is lightweight and comes with a reusable filter. The built-in battery can last for eight hours on a single charge. Unlike the mask, it doesn't cover cover the mouth and nose.
