Space station style air purification now ready for your computer cave

Holing up in your geek lair for the winter can feel something like being locked in an air tight space station, so it only makes sense to use astronaut-like methods to clean your air with something like the Andrea Air Purifier.

Developed by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur and Harvard professor David Edwards, the device uses a common houseplant sealed in a special casing to draw in polluted air and, using the plant's natural metabolic activity, push out the cleanest air a homebound code monkey has ever inhaled. You can pick your Andrea Air Purifier for just $198 here.
