A new concept called the AIRE Mask has been created by João Paulo Lammoglia, and has been designed to convert wind energy created by your breath into energy to recharge your iOS devices. The AIRE Mask is equipped with small wind turbines that covert the users breath in to energy, and pass this on to the charge your device.
The AIRE charger has been created to be used in any situation, indoors or outdoors, and can be used whilst sleeping, walking, or running. Allows you to create energy simply from your breath. The AIRE Masks designer João Paulo Lammoglia explains:
“The consumerist tendencies of today’s industrialised society make the use of gadgets increasingly common, either by necessity or hobby. Though many of our gadgets offer benefits, they tend to consume a high amount of electrical energy. This may cause problems for the environment, especially if the energy used by these devices is derived from non-renewable sources.”
The AIRE is a Red Dot award design winner, but is still only a concept at the moment, and no details have been released as to whether the design will ever go in to production.
