Andrea – naturally purified air

Andrea

Andrea is the world’s first biologically natural air filter. It works by using naturally growing plants to purify the atmosphere in a room, using air, water and soil filtration to remove noxious stuff from the air in a room. It certainly looks very cool, not sure whether the plants feel so happy about their role in the process though. But who’s going to ask them? $199.99.

 It naturally purifies air by drawing it with a whisper-quiet fan to propel it through the leaves and root system of a plant, then out through water and soil filtration and back into the room environment. Since the late 1980s scientists have sought to improve the efficiency of living plants to naturally clean the air of harmful pollutants. ANDREA advances on these efforts with world-class design, elegant simplicity, and improved filtration. ANDREA continuously draws polluted air from the environment and passes it across living surfaces that absorb and metabolize gaseous pollutants.

  • Better get an oxygen mask at night when it starts pumping out pure unadulterated CO2!

    • You might want to brush up on your photosynthesis Steven, plants absorb CO2 and water and create O2 and sugars.

  • Seems like a bit of a con to me. Is this really going to do more than just a plant? I mean by all means stick a fan in front of the plant if you think it will help. :S
