"The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of products created to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits", Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company, said in a news release.

In fact, the mask has a sensor to detect the rhythm and pace of your breathing, which lets it adjust the speed of those fans to match your inhales and exhales.

Called the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier, the mask promises to filter the air users take in, while interfering as little as possible with their breathing patterns.

Do note however that LG never mention anything about this mask being a deterrent against Covid-19 but the press release only focuses on its ability to provide clean air. A company executive claimed that LG hoped that the mask would make it easier for first responders and medical staff to wear masks for prolonged periods.

The mask also includes UV-LED lights that kill harmful germs.

To limit air leakage around the nose and chin, the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier uses its ergonomic design that is touted to be based on facial shape research conducted internally by the company.

LG states that the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier resolves issues of homemade masks being of inconsistent quality and disposable masks being in short supply. The mask also has an 820mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high mode.

If you're exhausted of the regular old 3-ply face mask and wanted something a little bit more high-tech, then LG got just the thing for you. It can also send a notification to users through the LG ThinQ mobile app when the filters require a replacement.

'Because every component - from the filters to the ear straps - is replaceable and recyclable, it's an environmentally responsible solution as well, ' the firm said.

The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier will be showcased at IFA 2020 in September, while its availability in select markets is set for the fourth quarter.

(Pocket-lint) - Face masks are a bit of a boom market at the moment, for obvious reasons, but they're also obviously one where companies have to tread fairly carefully to make sure they're not seen as exploiting the demand.
