If you have allergies to dust, pollen, pet hair, or smoke, this cup-holder-sized smart air filter is for you.
Air filters and air purification systems are always on show at CES, and this year is no different.
One new product that stood out was the Scosche portable air filter. Designed to fit in a car’s cup holder, it purifies up to four square meters of space.
What About the Smart Features?
Officially called the FrescheAir Portable HEPA Air Purifier and Deodorizer, the filter is motion-activated—whenever someone steps inside your car, it will turn itself on and start the cleanse the air.
There’s also a digital display on the top of the device. It shows your car cabin’s current air quality, temperature, and humidity.
According to company reps at CES 2021, the device is ideal for anyone who suffers from allergies such as hayfever or pet dander.
The device, which is available for $99 upon launch, also ships with a dual 12W USB car charger and a regular charging cable.
Remember, you will need to replace the HEPA air filter on a regular basis. Depending on the environment, the recommended lifespan of a filter is four to six months. If you let it run longer, the performance will start to drop off.
It’s not out on the main branch just yet, but it’s still a sneak peek of things to come.
