What is one of the best parts of an escape from the grey skies of your town for an exotic vacation in the beaches of Cyprus or the Western Cost of Australia? A long-haul in the mid-climate where summer flowers are just starting to bloom and those sandy-beaches! Or perhaps, somewhere cooler! What if experiencing something like that was simply a matter of indicating a spot on a small, tech-enabled globe?
Can you imagine enjoying that sea-breeze without any travel fuss? That being said, look no further, than the Air Globe, a conceptual design by National Taipei University of Technology Master Degree Student Pei-Chih, presently a contender in the Electrolux Design Lab competition. The purpose of the Air Globe is that the user can pick a geographical location on the globe and experience its atmosphere within the comfort and convenience of his or her dwelling place.
The gadget recreates the atmosphere of one's preferred destination by gathering continuous information on the temperature, humidity levels, smells and even the sounds of the particular place. The geographical data from the place, climate and name appear on the display for simple reference. Thus the slogan: “Bringing sunny Miami to your rainy Monday "—in light of the fact that regardless of where you live, we all how terrible Mondays can go leaving us in wintery blues!
Likewise with its underlying typology, the Air Globe turns on an axis, making it simple for the user to diverse atmospheres with an essential summon of geology. The viewfinder at the highest point of the 3D guide fuses an magnification feature for those of you looking to do some city-particular globetrotting.
"By choosing regions and times, we can not only have the air we want precisely, but also feel the changes of the seasons," Deng says. "Also, we can know the climates around the world—so it becomes a perfect consultant for every time you travel."
The air purifier sounds extraordinary, and wouldn’t want to know how long it would take for the tabletop gadget to turn transform their loft into an ice escape from the inexorably drabby local weather!
As to how its concept designer got the idea of making such a wonderful tech piece? Pei-Chih saw somebody selling air bottles from other geographies on Earth and got pretty much interested in the whole idea. Don’t we all desire to breathe in the Alps or the Hawaii? That is exactly how Chih was inspired to create a gadget that could generate air from anywhere on Earth!
