LG launching "wearable air purifier" PuriCare

LG has unveiled PuriCare, a "wearable air purifier" ahead of the upcoming IFA press conference in Berlin — though the company is opting for a virtual presence at this year’s show, TechCrunch reports.

According to a press release from the company: “LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier resolves the dilemma of homemade masks being of inconsistent quality and disposal masks being in short supply. The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier employs two H13 HEPA filters, similar to the filters used in the company’s home air purifier products.

“We’re waiting until further testing is complete before we’re able to share full details.”

LG's press release does not mention coronavirus though.
