I guess if it’s an emergency situation where you have no power and absolutely have to make a phone call or listen to a Kenny Chesney track, you might find someone charging their mobile device with one of these masks while hiding in their basement…
I’m pretty certain I’m not going to see anyone running on the street with this contraption strapped on their face. I’m still trying to figure out if this story in the Daily Mail is a spoof. My emphasis.
The clever piece of kit, dubbed the AIRE mask, harnesses the wind power created by breathing and converts it into electricity to run anything from your iPod to your mobile.
The electronic mask contains tiny wind turbines and the energy created is transferred through a cable to your electronic device.
Inventor Joco Paulo Lammoglia, from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, said the device could be used in all situations from running to sleeping.
He said: ‘I hope to bring the concept into production and reduce the carbon footprint.
Goodness greif. Does the designer realize how much extra CO2 runners put out when they are running? 😉
