A change in the Wynds 

The California-based startup Wynd Technologies have recently released their new project of a portable device that cleans the air you breathe. This portable gadget called Wynd is a tiny air purification system that analyzes air for particles and despite being small-sized, it is capable of filtering and releasing up to 8 liters of clean air per second. 

It comes with an electrostatic filter that captures every particle over one micron and houses an antimicrobial silver layer to kill biological particles. Despite purifying the air of a normal-sized personal space (such as your office, your bedroom etc..) it also comes with another tiny gadget called Air Quality Tracker that analyzes the air and sends the information straight to your iPhone device (the app currently supports only iOS devices) via Wynd's Air Bubbles app.

The very same app lets you connect with other Wynd users you know and keep stats of their air conditions, sends you notifications when the air near you is polluted and lets you know what your lungs are taking in. Makers of the Wynd claim that they have delivered 40 prototypes to people in the Israel, U.S, China, and Nepal and that the testing resulted in success. 

As Wynd uses filters to clean the air, its parts need regular replacement. The filters have a lifespan of 3 months to up to one year when the device is not exposed to heavily polluted air, the good side is that the firm claims to replace filters for free for the funders of their crowdfunding campaign on #Kickstarter. Basically, you can pre-order Wynd only from KickStarter where its makers have reached $237,966 in funds with 27 more days to go.

Note: Participating as a funder on the crowdfunding sites is not considered as an order. If for some reason any startup collapses or disappears it will be very hard for you to receive a refund. Either way, this could prove very useful in areas of the world where pollution and bad air quality runs rampant. Wynd Technologies is certainly striving for better air quality, one air bubble at a time. #Health
