Thanko USB Allergy Mask

In an especially unusual move, Thanko on Friday revealed the USB Mask. The device is made just for regular computer users whose desks and offices are prone to dust, pollen, and other allergy-inducing materials in the air. It uses a free USB port on any Mac or Windows PC to power an active filter that cycles out harmful particles. The mask is made out of silicone to provide a comfortable fit and help wearers concentrate on their work.

The Japanese firm currently sells its unconventional face guard for $20; a separate AC adapter for using the mask away from a computer sells for an extra $11. [via New Launches]

    I'm not positive, but I think the chick in the picture is saying, "Yes, Luke, it's true. I am your father, Luke."
