Japanese IT equipment and services company Fujitsu has launched a laptop with a built-in air purification system.
Fujitsu’s new Lifebook AH78/HA includes Nanoe – a unit developed by Japanese consumer electronics company Panasonic, which is designed to eliminate harmful particles from the surrounding atmosphere. The device uses negative ion particles to reduce levels of airborne fungi, smells, viruses and allergens in the 1 sq m surrounding the notebook.
The Nanoe provides a healthy haven for those using their laptops in public where bad smells, second-hand smoke and particles could cause discomfort. Fujitsu tested the Nanoe’s performance with common airborne particles, including orchard grass and ragweed pollen, and found a 99% reduction after one hour.
The Lifebook AH78/HA is on sale in Japan.
