(Womp, womp!) Instead of driving round for weeks with all of the home windows open to do away with it, Panasonic’s “nanoe X” is a transportable air air purifier that may be perched in a cup holder to clear a automobile’s inside of undesirable smells.

Years in the past, we reached out to Toyota to search out out precisely the place that new automotive odor got here from, and the reply, sadly, was from unstable natural compounds being emitted from plastics and vinyls within the automobile nonetheless off-gassing after manufacturing. As interesting as that odor could also be to some folks, these compounds are literally air pollution that ought to most likely be prevented, and a automobile’s personal air filtration system isn’t sufficient to shortly eradicate them.

The air purifier depends on the corporate’s nanoe X know-how, which it’s utilized in different purifying merchandise earlier than.

The know-how sounds chock filled with questionable buzzwords, however Panasonic says its nanoe X merchandise have been licensed by organizations just like the California Air Resource Board, the Underwriters Laboratories, and the Electrical Testing Laboratory, so we’ll give them the advantage of the doubt till we’re in a position to go hands-on with the machine, however pricing and availability aren’t identified but.
