Air-Purifier Bike Generates Oxygen Out Of Polluted Air

According to the World Health Organisation, air pollution is regarded as a risk factor for stroke, lung cancer and various respiratory infections.

According to the World Health Organisation, air pollution is regarded as a risk factor for stroke, lung cancer and various respiratory infections. Also people who live in highly polluted areas are prone to have neuroplastic effects on them, like having a very poor mental capacity and high risk of brain damage. Don’t you just hate pollution?

Accepting the damage and to challenge the pollution we have done so far, a Bangkok-based concept designing company, Lightfog, is introducing a new concept bike known as Air-Purifier Bike.

Bike That Purifies Polluted Air and Generates Oxygen Out Of It

The Air-Purifier Bike concept focuses on restraining the problem caused by air pollution in the city by filtering the polluted air and generate oxygen out of it. The bike consists of air filter, a photosynthesis system (oxygen generator), an electric motor and a battery.

The air filter monitors pollutants from the air and the photosynthesis system inside the body frame generates oxygen. While it is being pedaled, the polluted air passes through the air filter and release the cleaned air out. Even when the bike is not used, it can continue to purify air under battery power.

The designer or whoever is behind the bike needs a thumbs-up. Also, regardless of its feasibleness, the idea to rebuff air pollution just by pedaling is utterly amazing.

  1. Interesting and would be damned helpful for cyclists – it’s bad enough having ‘Black bogie and phlegm’ via city pollution and walking down the street smelling nothing but smoke/fumes. What’s in the purifiers?

  2. What an awesome concept. I’m happy that we’re coming up with these ideas to help the environment, but I’d be thrilled if we put some of these into our everyday lives.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. That will happen soon, I was thinking why scientists haven’t invented something that works like photosynthesis. That way we would have more oxygen. Thanks! 🙂
