A futuristic-looking wearable air purifier has been created by US-based start-up Biotlab.

The Air-Ring is worn around the neck and surrounds the user’s face with purified air, delivered by what the makers describe as a powerful, silent air turbine.

Intake air is HEPA-filtered and UV-sterilised to remove particles and deactivate pathogens and viruses.

Air-Ring operates for up to 8 hours on a single battery charge and is designed to be worn comfortably all day. No price has been given, but a crowdfunding campaign is scheduled to go live soon.
