Like Bling? How About Clean Air.

The world's largest air purifier turns smog into gemstones.

Because science is determined to be the coolest thing ever, designer Daan Roosegaarde has officially unveiled this awesome machine. It scrubs pollution from 30,000 cubic meters of air per hour, and condenses pollutant particles into adorable little gemstones. Currently, it runs on about as much energy as a hot water boiler, and plans for the future include a totally sustainable solar energy source. Are you ready to say "I do"?

To decreasing pollution, that is.

The project is ready to expand, and currently the team that designed the tower is negotiating with Mumbai, Paris, Kazakhstan, and China to bring another tower there. The team is also measuring the environmental impact of the first tower in Rotterdam. With more of these in our future, we could all breathe easier.

@Eddy2020 that's what I hope too!! It seems like there's not going to be just one solution, you know? Solar power won't work everywhere, the same way wind turbines won't work everywhere. We need lots of different options so different communities can combat climate change in the best ways for them
It could be like a cool club thing too. Like everyone that wears these can identity they are helping the world, and be like “ohh i like your ring, you like the plant too huh?” haha @WiviDemol
