With the new mask, LG claims that its customers will be comfortably able to breathe air that is clean and healthy for a period of up to eight hours. Along with filters, the device is equipped with ultraviolet LEDs to kill germs, and it is also able to adjust to the volume of air inhaled and exhaled by the user, with twin fans that speed up and slow down to facilitate easy breathing. For added convenience, the mask’s integrated battery can also be recharged directly in the special case that will ship with the device.

With regard to its environmental impact, LG is keen to point out that all of the components in the PuriCare Wearable, from the filters to the headband, can easily be replaced and are fully recyclable.

As it stands, no availability or pricing information has been announced for the new mask, which is expected to go on sale in late this year.
