Andrea Air Purification

These days I tend to spend most of my time glued to my keyboard and mouse working.  Could be worse I guess, I could be a TSA agent.  Being stuck in an office all day sometimes has me worrying about the air quality.  A, not so, new way of purifying the air is using plants.

The Andrea Air Purifier is designed by Mathieu Lehanneur (a French designer) and David Edwards (a Harvard professor) and uses a standard houseplant sealed in a clear casing.  The Andrea Air Purifier draws air, cleans it using the plants natural metabolic activity, and then pushes it out for your breathing pleasure.  Yours for about $169 here.
