Hand Tree is an Air Purifier That You Can Wear

by Hazel Chua

Smog, haze, smoke, exhaust… The atmosphere is full of pollutants these days. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about it. You could go out and face the world wearing a mask, or you could just slip the Hand Tree around your wrist the next time you take a stroll – assuming it existed.

Wearable Filter

The Hand Tree is a concept design by¬†Alexandr Kostin that marries wearable technology with a relatively common appliance, the air purifier. The bracelet is essentially a wearable air purifier that filters air on the go, surrounding its wearer with fresh air that’s minus all the unpleasant smells and particulates normally found in city air.

It’s a neat concept but I think the task of shrinking a normally bulky air purifier down to wrist size would be very, very challenging.

The Hand Tree is a semi-finalist in the Electrolux Design Lab 2013.
