French startup company submitted an interesting blend of fashion and technology – Wair, smart scarf with built-respiratory mask and filters for particles that pollute the air. Smart scarf hides a respiratory mask, and with the application on the smartphone, the owner will be able to know when to put it over the mouth, ie. when to put a respiratory mask hidden under a scarf.
France starpup company plans to put smart scarf on sale later this year, reports the BBC.
“This is a blend of fashion, air filtration system and applications to prevent inhalation of polluted air,” said company founder Caroline Van Rentergherm adding that protection from pollution is important, but more people would use the masks that do not look intimidating.
Wair, such as the phone must be charged via a micro USB port. The scarf can be washed like any other piece of clothing, provided that the filter is removed.
