The air purifier bike concept will let riders clean the air as they ride by filtering out pollutants and creating oxygen. The concept bike will be equipped with an air filter between the handle bars that will screen pollutants and dust and an oxygen-producing "photosynthesis system" that will include a water tank, electric motor and a battery. As the bike is being ridden, air will be forced through the filter and cleaned, allowing fresh air to flow onto the cyclist. The...
A new CO2 scrubbing filter inspired by bird lungs could be applied to both power plants and automobiles. The scrubber will be based on the tiny tubes inside the lungs of birds, called parabronchii. The tubes, with their large surface area, are very efficient at filtering oxygen from the air--a necessary adaptation since birds fly often fly at altitudes where there is very little oxygen. Using the lungs as a model, it will be possible to design filters made of different-sized...
Portable air quality sensors could help people suffering from chronic conditions like asthma and COPD breathe a bit easier by allowing them to check the air condition in their immediate with their smartphones. The system will consist of small air quality sensors that could be carried by the individual or deployed around a particular area. The sensors will be able to measure local concentrations of pollutants, such as carbon monoxide and ozone, and transmit the data wirelessly to...
