  • AIRE Mask: For Charging Your iPhone While You Breathe


    Save on your electricity bills with the AIRE mask charger. This mask will charge your iDevice while you are breathing at a normal pace; using the air you breathe to propel a few mini wind turbines. The mask is only a concept and does not exist at this point in time (thank goodness). Itís a ridiculously hilarious way to charge your iPhone, and I donít know anyone who would really want to wear one of these.

    I'm not sure what it is about this mask that makes me uncomfortable about it, the fact that it would cover my mouth and nose just to charge an iDevice or the fact that it just looks embarrassing. On the other hand, it doesnít require any battery or electricity power to use. If you're not careful with it while sleeping, it looks like it even might be a strangle hazard. If it included an air filter, that would be pretty useful at certain times - like using your iPhone near a couple of smokers.

    While the mask hasnít been produced yet and will likely never blast off as a popular charging method, the designer might be on to something. I can just see myself having a miniature windmill in my front yard, sometime in the future, specifically for charging my iPhone.

    Maybe it's just me, but would you wear one of these every time your battery gets low?

      What the heck. It looks...ridiculous. I agree with the "miniature windmill" concept you mentioned but uh...I am not going to charge my phone with my breathing.

      I was going to just post "no," but there was actually a question asked so it's not as funny.

      Interesting way to charge a phone, could be practical if you're on an extended camping trip and don't have a solar charger.

      Or you could just get a solar charger instead.

      Also the iPhone 5 is clearly in that picture.

      Surprisingly nobody's commented about the design of the iPod in here. Usually everyone goes crazy if they see something like that. Ha

      Everyone has pretty great comments so kudos to them.

      I'm wondering would drool hurt the device itself?

      If so and there's an open electrical current I'm dead.
