Air Purifier Works Without Your Filthy Hands Touching It

Illustration for article titled Air Purifier Works Without Your Filthy Hands Touching It

Are you aware of the bacteria on the things you touch daily? Dials and switches are crawling with germs. Turn a dial on an air purifier to clean the air you breathe, and you potentially infect yourself. That's why this steel-and-glass beauty features a motion-sensitive control. Control its speed with a wave of the hand.


It's called the Sense Air Purifier, and it's part of a collaboration between venerable air purifier manufacturer Blueair and Swedish design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune. The device will have all the functionality of most air purifiers, so it will be able to kill mold and bacteria. Price hasn't been announced yet, but you can expect it to cost, approximately, way too much for an air purifier.

But, for the real hypochondriacs, getting clean air without having to touch anything could be priceless. [FastCoDesign]
