AIRE mask turns breath into electricityMarch 1st, 2012 - 8:51 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, Mar 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A new invention turns the human breath to electricity. The mask, called AIRE, uses tiny wind turbines to convert the breath to electricity which can be used for menial tasks like charging phones and other small devices.
The designers intend the device to be used in all activities from napping to jogging. The inventor of AIRE, João Paulo Lammoglia, says he is working on the commercial production of the mask to help bring down the carbon footprint which is blamed for the destruction of the planet.
Lammoglia told reporters that, “Harnessing energy from human activities and transforming it into electrical energy is possible, and is a great solution to energy issues… Besides saving energy, and contributing to environmental preservation, it also encourages the practice of physical exercise. Its energy is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
Green campaigners will undoubtedly hail the new invention. Concerns that the planet is fast deteriorating because of the release of green houses has raised campaign for energy to be generated from other sources.
Currently, most of the world’s energy needs are generated through sources which are considered non-renewable.
