Sprimo takes a personal approach to purifying your air

We’ve written about a no of air purifiers before, but Sprimo is taking a different approach — instead of trying to spotless all the air in the room, it creates a personalized stream of spotless air for individual users.

Now, a phrase love “personalized stream of clean air” might sound a small silly, but CEO Ray Combs and CTO Harold Han (who's a Ph. D. in chemistry from NY University) convinced me that if you’re going to purchase an air purifier, Sprimo could be an efficient and affordable alternative.

After all, they said that only one % of the air from “whole room” purifiers actually reaches you, making the personalized approach ten times more efficient. Plus, it allows for things love temperature to be tailored to your preferences.

“Have you ever gotten in someone’s car and adjusting the air vents is the first thing you do?” Combs said. “We all have a perception of what we wish our air to feel like.”

So Sprimo is designed to be set up on your desk, declare at your office. Then once you turn it on, it filters out toxins and allergens, with a fan blowing in your face (in a subtle, not annoying, way) to create what Combs called “a bubble of fresh air.” Of course, you’re not totally isolated from the air around you, but Combs said the Sprimo’s “influence” extends two meters out from the fan and takes effect in about thirty seconds.

The filters are customizable based on your needs, declare if you've a specific problem with pollen or live in a city where there’s a high concentration of a certain chemical. Combs said Sprimo can obtain smarter about this over time, because it'll analyze the used filters that customers send in through the filter exchange program.

Sprimo is currently crowdfunding on Crowd Supply, with a pre-order price of $319.
