Lammoglia’s AIRE mask, which harnesses the wind power from breathing, “contains tiny wind turbines and the energy created is transferred through a cable to your electronic device,” the Mail reports.
“I hope to bring the concept into production and reduce the carbon footprint,” Lammoglia told the Mail. “It can be used indoors or outdoors, while you’re sleeping, walking, running, or even reading a book.”
“Besides saving energy and helping environmental preservation, it also encourages physical exercise,” Lammoglia says.
Unlike solar power, which can be sapped if it encounters too many cloudy days, the AIRE mask can generate power 24/7, he says.
