Thanko, the USB powered air-purifier that makes sure you breathe easy

by Gavril Mankoo

Tired of the smell lingering around your cubicle? Well, here’s a fantastic way to drive it all away! Called the Thanko, this simple air-purifier is powered by connecting to your computer. Using a USB jack, this little air purifier basically sucks in smelly air, purifies it all and blows it back out. The device comes with a six-layer filter element that traps particles in the air as small as 0.3 micrometers!

Apart from removing odors, the Thanko also functions as an ionizer. And that’s not all. The purifier is topped with a UV light that makes sure no germs and bacteria are floating around in the air near you. No more will you suffer from the odor of stale socks or catch the flu from the guy sneezing in a cubicle beside you. The Thanko comes for $64 though US buyers will need to ship one of these from Japan.
