Lean, mean allergy-fightin' machine

It will clear the air and looks like 'Robot' in 'Lost in Space.'


It's the height of summer, and for some of us that means allergy hell. Even our fortified caves and vehicles can't keep out all the offensive particles that make life miserable. So it may seem like desperation to you lucky non-sufferers out there, but we're sorely tempted to invest in this "Pro-Aqua" air-cleaning system, which sounds like a combination of a "Scooba" and one of those industrial-strength mosquito machines.

The indoor system improves air and climate quality through wet and dry cleaning mechanisms, including "wet vacuuming, air washing and scenting, inhalation, bed and mattress cleaning, carpet and upholstery cleaning and vacuuming." Sounds like a germaphobe's dream.

Appliancist notes also that the system is "aesthetically designed." We agree, but to us it looks like it could be the little brother of "Robot" in Lost in Space.
