The AIRE Mask
This odd looking 'hannibal lecter' style mask could soon be helping you to charge your mobile phone or portable device using only your breath.
The mask, currently in concept stage, uses a number of small turbines to convert your breath into electrical energy. After winning a Red Dot design award, inventor Joco Paulo Lammoglia hopes that it can become a genuine alternative energy source.
"I hope to bring the concept into production and reduce the carbon footprint", he told the Daily Mail. "It can be used indoors or outdoors, while you're sleeping, walking, running or even reading a book."
Whilst the concept is both intriguing and ingenious, would you really want to wear one while you sleep or even when you go for a run? I'm not so sure.
