LG has introduced an up to date model of its high-tech, air-purifying face masks, the terribly-named LG PuriCare Wearable Air Air purifier. The corporate hasn’t introduced pricing or widespread availability, however says the PuriCare will launch in Thailand subsequent month “with different markets to observe as soon as authorised by native regulators.” Between the continued pandemic and widespread air air pollution, there’s purpose to assume there’ll be demand for merchandise like this.
LG first introduced the masks final 12 months, which makes use of replaceable air filters and built-in followers to filter the air. LG says the brand new model has a smaller and lighter motor, in addition to built-in microphones and audio system that amplify the wearer’s voice. (Video of the unique masks reveals that it muffled speech fairly successfully.) The latter know-how, which LG is looking VoiceON, “mechanically acknowledges when customers are speaking and amplifies their voice by way of the built-in speaker.”
LG isn’t the primary firm to place this type of voice-amplification tech in a face masks, with Razer’s Mission Hazel masks (which is supposedly arriving in restricted portions later this 12 months) providing an analogous set-up. Razer’s masks additionally has LED lighting, so take that, LG.
The brand new LG PuriCare masks weighs 94 grams, has a in-built 1,000mAh battery, and recharges in two hours by way of USB. LG claims it’s snug sufficient to put on for as much as eight hours at a time, however in my expertise no masks is actually snug after a number of hours.
Notably, LG isn’t claiming the masks will shield in opposition to the novel coronavirus in any means, although it did trace that this was the case when it first introduced the product. It’s true that some air purifying filters do catch particles the scale of the virus that causes COVID-19, however with out scientific research on this specific product or extra particulars concerning the type of filters it makes use of, we are able to’t and shouldn’t make any claims for its efficacy on this regard. A masks is actually higher than no masks, although, and the most effective masks is one you’ll fortunately put on.
Anyway, welcome to 2021: we’re doing spec updates on face masks now.
