In fact, the whole city seems to be in the process of being dug up and put back together again, and all that means is a fresh batch of particles in the air to join those from our friends up the Pearl River. It’s one thing to breathe all that rubbish in during the day – although we all know that simply placing your hand under your nose and grimacing is not a CDC-certified filtration process – but it’s another to have it in your home.
This month sees the launch of the Dyson Pure Air. Brought to you by that clever Brit James Dyson – the creator of the ‘ballbarrow’, the world’s best vacuums and hand driers that literally blow you away – the Pure Cool is an extension of the brand’s popular bladeless fans – yes, the ones you hesitate about putting your hand through. After 450 prototypes, the company has created a bladeless fan with a filter that removes 99.95 percent of ultrafine particles – dust, viruses, bacteria and pollen to be precise. Use the Pure Cool for 12 hours a day and you’ll only need to replace the filter once a year. It has a hefty price tag for a tower fan but just might be ticket for pollution reduction in your man cave this summer.
After all, that’s the last place you want blades.
