The 2021 all digital Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the largest trade show in the U.S., is currently underway in Las Vegas. A whole host of interesting products have already been introduced to the virtual audience. One highlighted here is AirPop’s Active+ Smart Mask. AirPop has been producing masks since 2015 and is the world’s first “air wearables” mask company, producing ultra-high-performance products that provide an unrivaled breathing experience. Being able to breathe well with a mask on is, no doubt, something that we can all relate to right now. The Active+ Smart Mask takes this to a whole new level. The mask, which contains a filter that snaps into place, uses AirPop’s Halo sensor to capture breathing-related health data and provides feedback about users’ breathing habits and filter quality. The little knob on the front of the mask is where the Halo sensor resides.
The Halo sensor connects to Android or iOS devices through Bluetooth, and the health data it collects can be shared with Apple HealthKit. The app provides valuable data on pollutants the mask has blocked. It informs the user about the mask’s effectiveness, along with how long you’ve been wearing the mask per day and over time, breaths taken per minute, as well as the volume of air that has passed through the mask. It also provides advice on air quality in the local area and suggests whether wearing the mask would be beneficial, and in what environments. Remarkably, AirPop claims its four-layer filters will remove 99.3% of particles and 99.9% of bacteria. Available by mid-February, the Active+ Smart Mask will come in white, black, and a bright lime green version.
