Breathing Bowl: Dust Collector for City Souvenir
Doing exercise outdoors is impossible in China while people facing their health concerns at the city’s smog problem. Instead of running on a treadmill, we proposed a “Breathing Bowl” for those who want to exercise in the real environment.
Face mask in not enough now for outdoor training. Our Breathing Bowl is an excellent apparatus that offers a head-sized bowl of clean air for running outdoors. Fresh air will be delivered into the breathing bowl through the spherical filter in front of the runner, then go out through the one-way ventilation fan. Every wave of the arm and every step will provide electricity for the filter ball.
“The more everyone run, the cleaner the air will be.“, Runner is also collecting dust for their city while enjoying fresh air.
There are scale models of cityscape inside every filter ball, which will become a dust crystal ball – a unique souvenir for tourists visit China. The clean, glorious vision of every city was sealed in the crystal ball, then covered by dust step by step.
