“OZ-1”, a device integrated with refined technology of ozone generator and HEPA filter, which perform as an air purifier as well as a fashionable accessory. With it dual air purifying capability, the right device are able to release a significant amount of (0.1-0.3 ppm) oxidant to neutralize harmful gases in the air while the integrated HEPA filter on the left help to trap dust and particles. It also offer a secondary function of being a cigarette smoke remover which is able to trap the smell of tar and chemical produce from burning cigarette. The integrated smoke sensor will detect smoke and activates the device to trap and neutralize the unpleasant odor before it is bonds with your clothing.

Users may choose to hide the device under their collar to makes the device subtler or displaying it by converting the device into a necklace to show their fashion sense. Varieties of cover designs are available catering to different fashion style, this allows users to mix and match it with their outfit.

With further research on expanding my concept, to open up to a more general market, I look into the aspect of the demand of consumer in the modern society. My approach of enhancing the product revolves around fashion, beauty and scent. Aromatherapy perfume not only reflects your fashion style and personality, it also can aid relaxation. The scents coming from the perfumes can refresh and de-stress the mind of those who wear and smell it. Aromatherapy becomes an essential tool for a fast moving pace society where stress is something we cannot avoid in our daily life. Our olfactory system and brain are closely related; the aromatherapy perfumes are able to affect and alter a person’s moods. Some of these perfumes even enrich your skin. With refreshing air and beautiful skin, it will be hard for anyone to resist it.

In order to allow OZ-1 to auto release scent from your chosen perfume cartridge, users simply have to add in the essence to the inlet; with the built-in atomiser, fragrance essence is being converted into fine mist. While the device is activated, it will auto dispense from the device.

With OZ-1 performing as an air cleaning device as well as a stress reliever all integrated in a fashion piece, the experience of using an air purifier will never be the same.

The visual development of the concept is beautiful, which you can showcase in more detail in the next development stage. As the accessory is very close to the user and personal, the shape and size could be clarified.

Ever wonder how to prevent the smell of cigarette smoke from your clothes? Cigarette smoke can easily bond with the clothes you are wearing and the strong odour may be stuck for hours causing discomfort to the person sitting next to you.

Introducing “OZ-1”, a device integrated with refined technology of ozone generator as well as a fashionable accessory. OZ-1 serve as a cigarette smoke remover which is able to trap the smell of tar and 50 over chemical produce from burning cigarette.

Users are able to hide the device under their collar using the clips, which serve as grip; this makes the device subtler. On the other hand, users can also display the device, showing their fashion sense. The hidden magnetic components allow the left and right devices to join transforming it into a necklace. Varieties of cover designs are available catering to different fashion style, this allows users to mix and match it with their clothing.

To activate the device, simply insert the filter cartridge into the device before turning it on. A single cartridge can last a user 3-5 days depending on the usage. The integrated smoke sensor will detect smoke and activates the ozone generator to trap the unpleasant odour before it is bonds with your clothing. When no smoke is detected, the device will go into sleep mode to conserve the battery life. The built-in speaker notifies users when the battery is low and when the filters need to be changed, through the rhythms of the beeping.

Expert feedback, stage 1

An air cleaner which works like a fashion jewelry is a nice idea – how would you further explain the consumer appeal in such a concept? This concept could maybe be find a broader target group, if functionality would be developed beyond solving cigarette smoke odor.
