If you live in countries with four seasons, then you will probably complain about two things: humid summer and dry winter, which result in you having two separate appliances to keep the air dry during those hot summer days and another to wet the air to counter the dry winter season. ROOT, conceptualized by South Korean industrial designer Seungwoo Kim, is a super sleek appliance that does both, so you and I can cut the clutter of having too many appliances. No, wait. In fact, with ROOT you can strike two appliances off your quality lifestyle equation, because it is also an air purifier that employs HEPA filter to weed out airborne impurities, so the room will be mostly impurity-free at the same time, be it winter, summer, or anything in between.

Instead of coming out with a separate standalone appliance, Dyson is kind of obsessed with making their appliances do double duty. It has a fan that spits out hot and cold air, humidifier that kills bacteria, then a faucet that blow dries your hands and now, it has a fan, a bladeless one to be specific, that purifies the air too. We are not complaining though. If there is an appliance that does more than one task, then we all up for it since it can save us one outlet and rid the room of one appliance. Agree? The problem is with the price, but we will get to that later. Taking its multiplier fan aka bladeless fan as the base, the aptly named Pure Cool looks pretty much like the British company bladeless tower fan, but has a HEPA filter base instead.

Can’t get enough home automation? Or maybe just irk by the fact that some of your home appliances are still not smart enough? Well, then there is more good news for you from Belkin. It has just announced three more WeMo-enabled products, this time collaborating with Jarden Consumer Solutions’ Holmes brand. The products include Holmes Smart Air Purifier with WeMo and a couple of Holmes Smart Heaters with WeMo. Purifier and heater by themselves are of course a commonplace, but with the incorporation of WeMo, Belkin heralds them into the many connected things you may already own. As expected, WeMo allows you to do stuff like setting schedules or program while away and in the process prepares a warm welcome when you eventually reach home.

we are all familiar with car air purifiers. more often than not, these so-called air purifiers create an illusion of freshness in the car by masking the odors with pleasant smelling aroma. that’s not to mention the myriad of chemicals that are being introduced into a closed environment which might not be everyone’s favor. however, not with the Purggo. inspired by the Latin word ‘purgo’ which basically means to purify, Purggo is one of the rare air purifier that utilizes the natural odor absorbing property of bamboo charcoal to get rid of foul or musky air.

we are not obsessed with super clean air, but if there’s one air purifier that’s based on NASA-developed technology to rid the air of contaminates, you know we’d be pretty thrilled. the appropriately named Airocide air purifier (genocide, airocide? yea. think you get the idea), employs photo-catalytic process to eliminate airborne organics without producing harmful byproducts, but the real kicker (at least for us) is, unlike traditional air purifiers, there is absolutely nothing to clean, which means one less work for us and that my friend, is a very welcomed news.

with all the shiny computers and gadgets you owned, it makes sense to get an equally beautiful (and space-age) air purifier to go along with them. right? the ANDREA Air Purifier looks like a scaled-down green house of the space-age era which should goes in harmony with all the modern high tech stuff you own. jointly developed by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur and Harvard professor David Edwards, the ANDREA uses the natural metabolic activity of a common plant to purify the polluted air it draws in.
actually, i feel sorry for the plant for having to breath in our pollutes. but i guess every living things has their respective duty, so here within the ANDREA, the plant does what it does best for the better health for all of us. space-age device comes with a space-age price. the ANDREA will set you back at €149 (about $199). wow. maybe i should just purchase a few plants and lay them out around my room instead.
