Prototype, Test, Fail, Repeat.
Airban is an urban bike helmet that draws in polluted air, filters it and then projects out the clean air to form an air shield positioned off-set from the face - in front of, but not attached, to the nose and mouth.
The frame is extremely lightweight and is offset from the face meaning it is unobtrusive. This frame acts as a physical barrier in order to disperse and prevent any incoming air from interacting with the clean air. It also allows the clean air to flow down through an exit channel towards a breathable position.
Airban featured in various media articles including the Times, BBC, Yanko, Nottingham post, Nottingham University News etc. Use the following links to read further...
