A high-tech coat hanger uses negative ions to rid delicate clothes of odors

The Panasonic Nanoe X is a coat hanger that deodorizes your clothes while they hang in the closet. Using negatively charged particles (nanoe), it gets rid of odors like sweat and cigarette smoke without affecting the fabric. The negative ions, invisible to the eye, gather moisture from the air to remove odors, though the whole process takes 5-7 hours. Inbuilt with a clothing cover to ensure that the nanoes do a thorough cleaning, the hanger also removes pollen for allergy sufferers and doesn’t damage delicate fabrics. That said, it can’t remove stains from clothes or replace a real cleaning. The Nanoe X is currently only available in Japan for 20,000 yen (or $180).
