As urban environments deal with rising pollution and smog levels, masks like the Hexa by KOOLMASK are being developed to mitigate some of the health risks associated with pollution.
The smart filtration mask provides multiple functions in one product -- it works as an air quality monitor, purifies the air that filters through it, and also tracks air quality. It is described as a "personal clean air system engineered for superior airflow and unmatched production." The mask can be worn by those living in urban environments, as well as individuals who are prone to allergies and respiratory illnesses -- including everything from asthma to illnesses that are more severe in nature.
While climate change and pollution are still in dire need of being addressed and resolved, products like the Hexa are working to safeguard people from some of the inevitable consequences these global issues will have.
