In lead up to its virtual presence at the upcoming IFA consumer electronics and home appliances trade show conference in Berlin, LG has unveiled its innovative “PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier.”

The South Korean multinational electronics company’s invention looks to put an end of dilemmas of personal protective equipment (PPE) which include limited supplies, inconsistent quality and wide-ranging efficiency. Although LG does not openly mention the Coronavirus pandemic when talking about the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, it is safe to say the device was created because of the times we live in.

Also effective against pollution and environmental contaminants, the battery-powered mask utilizes two H13 HEPA filters, similar to what is found in LG’s in-home air filtration system, and disinfecting UV-LED lights. Additionally, the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier features on-board technology that regulates the speed of the filtration based on the wearer’s breath pattern. It is important to note that the mask can run eight hours on “Low” and two hours on “High” power, thanks to a built-in 820mAh battery.

Although there are no release notes for the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, LG will deliver more information after “further testing is complete” and it is confident that the product will go on sale during “the fourth quarter in select markets.”

In case you missed it, New York Fashion Week will go ahead, but there’ll be no front row.
