A mood-altering air filter

Mood lighting enhances the germaphobic experience.

The hot trend of air-purifying combo gadgetry continues. Just as we saw a few months ago with a lamp-speaker-filter , this convergence juggernaut continues unabated. The latest combination: a purifier with mood lighting.

What better way to relax after a hard day of destroying 99.97 percent of the allergens and contaminants in your immediate vicinity? It's like nalpalm in a bacteria-free morning, or perhaps the perfect setting for a romantic evening shared by two germaphobes. The curiously named "RabbitAir MinusA2 Air Purifier" supposedly can be programmed to target specific areas, with such category names as "Baby," "New House" and "Pet" filters. (Aren't those covered in the 99.97 percent? And why would you name an air purifier after a fur-bearing rodent? This item comes from Red Ferret, by the way, which seems like a conflict of interest.)

Comfort also comes at a hefty price: You might not continue to breathe so easily after seeing its $600 tag. But if it can keep certain feline elements at bay, it's money well spent.
