Whirlpool has been incorporating tech more and more into their plans for home appliances, and this concept, winner of their Inova award, is quite possibly the most futuristic air purifier we have ever seen.
Dubbed the Twilight, this device is a combination air conditioner and purifier. Twilight was developed by a group of Brazilian industrial design students including, Camila Possato, Camila Fortes, Renan Oliveira, Sarah Carvalho and Walter Batista.
While we use our air purifier to help remove scent from the air, Twilight allows users to add fragrance to the cooled circulating air. Twilight also has an OLED sheet that allows users to play videos and display images using the attached remote control. The designers envision being able to stream temperature, fragrance, and image sets from the internet allowing for a highly immersing sensory experience. Although we never thought that our air purifier needed to function as a display, we think this could have interesting potential.
What do you think of this concept?
