India’s First Indigenously Built Smart Air Purifier Unveiled, Courtesy IIT Madras!
Speaking to The Better India, Bhanu Prasanna Varma an IIT Madras alumni, AirOK’s Head of Business Development and market research told us about the conception of the product. “We started in April of 2015. We were working in the air quality monitoring technology; it was only later that we shifted into air control technology. Thereafter, our journey began.” The state-of-the-art purifiers have many futuristic features from Wi-Fi to touch interface to remote monitoring via mobile phone. The tech can estimate the percentage of pollutants in the air at any given point. A statement from IIT Madras described the product, “Vistar 550 has a coverage area of 550 square feet. The filter will have a life of about one year, which is twice that of the air purifiers currently available in the market.”
